Is a recognised gait and alignment analytical technique. Patterns of foot movement are largely identified through this technique. The technique uses a series of reference points tracking the relative movement of the feet, ankles, hips and knees during walking and running. I use video gait analysis to study the way a person moves in order to look for mechanical dysfunctions.
Most analysis is carried out using a tread mill in conjunction with video and computer software enabling very slow and extremely accurate footage to be used as the basis of taking measurements. The software uses freeze frame technology in order to make the appropriate measurements.
Once the footage is captured patients are able to see their foot movements for themselves helping further the better understanding of the problems at hand. Video footage taken is also made available to relevant professionals in situations where further patient referrals to other health care professionals are required.
