Orthotics

What are Orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-made orthopaedic devices that fit comfortably inside your shoes. They are made to correct various biomechanical problems in the feet by realigning and stabilising the bones. They help improve walking and running patterns, and can play a valuable role in the prevention and long-term management of many lower limb disorders. They allow your feet, legs, hips, pelvis and lower back to function more efficiently to reduce strain and pain from many different structures.

What is GaitScan™?

Our GaitScan™ System is a revolutionary diagnostic tool that is able to digitally map foot pressures during walking and running. Its computer software analyses the data collected from a pressure sensitive foot plate that you walk or run across.TOG GaitScan™ allows advanced gait analysis and can also be used to prescribe customised orthotics  and footwear that help treat and prevent many foot, lower limb and back problems.

At Lifestyle & Sports Physiotherapy we supply off the shelf orthotics as well as customised orthotics using GaitScan™ technology.
