PODOSmart ®

The Smart Insoles For Precise Gait Analysis

Measuring Your Walking In Real Life Conditions

PODOSmart® is the latest technology which allows us to accurately measure and analyze your walking profile and gait to refine your diagnosis.

PODOSmart technology - the smart insoles for precise analysis & diagnosis

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The PODOSmart® system uses smart insoles that feature in-built sensors that detect the smallest foot movements and an integrated micro-processor that calculates Biomechanical data.

 

1) The PODOSmart® insoles are placed within your shoes

2) A short walk in clinic is required to calibrate the insoles to your individual walking profile

3) A walk of up to 15 minutes is carried out to collect detailed information on your walking profile

4) The results are analysed on a computer/tablet by our Practitioner to prvoide a comprehensive review of your biomechanical efficiency

WHAT IS A MUSCULAR SKELETAL ASSESSMENT/GAIT ANALYSIS?

A MSA/GA is the analysis of the body’s movements when you stand and walk.

It involves an examination of the lower limbs, looking at their structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses.

The examination is not focused simply upon the foot but includes the pelvis, legs and knees, assessing the relationship between them.

It is important to examine the lower limbs as a whole as they are closely connected and pain in one area can be due to a weakness or structural problem in another area.

YOUR ASSESSMENT

We’re delighted to be able to offer you a MSA/GA assessment using this advanced technology.

The insoles contain several microprocessors which detect the smallest foot movements.

They are placed within your footwear and you’ll be asked to proceed to a walking activity.

Following a review of your assessment, we wil recommend treatments such as wearing shoes designed for your gait, wearing insoles or the prescription of custom made orthotics or referrals to a physiotherapist, osteopath or rheumatologist, depending on your results.

I have problem feet and Gill has been treating me for approximately 4 years.

I can’t describe the difference her care has made.  I feel my feet are ‘normal’ thanks to her.

Thank you Gill and team.
