Biomechanical assessment

Biomechanical assessment

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.
