Your orthotist will perform a thorough and discrete biomechanical assessment in order to get a clear picture of your condition and your needs.
Your orthosist will:
- review your physician's or podiatrist's prescription (not mandatory),
- gather information on your work and sporting activities,
- take into account your age, height and weight,
- record the description of your discomfort in your chart and establish a history of the pathology,
- perform a static analysis of your posture by examining the symmetry of your feet, ankles, legs, knees and hips,
- measure your feet,
- perform a dynamic analysis of your gait, with your cooperation,
- use the pressure sensor system to measure the distribution of pressure points under your feet while walking and in a static position (standing) in order to determine your centre of gravity,
- examine the state of your shoes.
