Biomechanical assessment

Biomechanical assessment

A biomechanical analysis is essential for creating foot orthoses adapted to your particular situation. This evaluation consists of an overview of your general condition, as well as an understanding of your needs.

The biomechanical analysis takes into account your prescription, the description of your duties at work and at home, your sports activities, your age, height and weight, and an evaluation of your aliments. Next, we perform a statistical analysis of the alignment and symmetry of your posture and take measurements of your feet. The dynamic gait analysis is conducted on a treadmill and recorded using a series of cameras. The video is studied by the orthotist in order to observe the various phases and mechanics of each step in slow motion. Additionally, foot pressure mapping, both walking and stationary, is performed in order to detect pathological pressure and determine the center of gravity, among other factors.

For 25 years now, we’ve offered our clientele the best orthopedic products and services to help promote a harmonious gait and reinforce their posture. Our biomechanical analysis is specific to each one of our clients and allows us to offer personalized products and services to improve their quality of life.
