Mr O'Neill uses the F-SCAN Computerised Gait Analysis System.

biomechanics for foot pain

This system uses the collection of information, about the way in which you walk, by means of sensors placed in your shoes. Data is gathered and processed by a computer, revealing patterns of gait imbalances. Research has shown a relationship exists between walking related problems and postural complaints. Pressure distribution and timing data are collected during a walk test. Since the average person walks approximately 5,000 to 7,000 steps per day, it is easy to to conceptualise how events occurring during the gait cycle, lasting only fractions of a second, can affect how we feel during the course of a day.
