PENSHURST PODIATRY CENTRE USES THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN COMPUTERISED GAIT ASSESSMENT AND 3D TECHNOLOGY
Penshurst Podiatry has been using Millitrex and Footscan assessment technolgy since 2000. As the technology advances so do we.
This system is used in many FOOTPOINT clinics around Australia.
Treadmill and Video Analysis
By combining the patients video analysis with real time pressure analysis on the treadmill, a holistic approach to assessment is given. We can show you the effect of biomechanical issues relating to your posture. It is interesting to see how the feet effect the knees and hips and visa versa.
Static and Dynamic Pressure Analysis
Patients can be assessed statically and dynamically on a mat on the floor which is suitable for older patients who are not stable enough to walk on the treadmill yet require advanced gait assessment.
Instead of using plaster we are able to use a 3D scanner to capture the foot . A cast is then made from this to make custom orthotics.
At Penshurst Podiatry Centre we use both softer, more flexible orthotics as well as polypropelene orthotics. This depends on the problem ,footwear and condition being treated.
