What is TOG Gaitscan?
We are proud to be able to offer the TOG Gaitscan system to all clients that are concerned with nagging foot pain. Conditions such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis can be helped with bespoke orthotic insoles that are made based on the recommendations from a Gaitscan.
TOG Gaitscan is the most technologically advanced gait analysis system available today. It comprises of a plate covered with thousands of tiny sensors that accurately measure the distribution of pressure through the sole of the foot, both standing (static) and walking (dynamic). The information from these sensors is then processed through specialised computer software to provide a 2D or 3D visual representation of the pressures under the feet and a detailed analysis report. This aids your practitioner in evaluating your foot function and determining your need for orthotic (custom insole) therapy. If orthotics are recommended for you, the wealth of information from the gaitscan and the practitioner’s evaluation of your foot biomechanics are combined to produce an individual prescription which is used by the Orthotic Group laboratories to manufacture your custom foot orthotics.
The orthotics are essentially a custom made insole, generally made of flexible, moulded thermoplastic (typically 2-3mm at their thinnest point) and fit comfortably in the shoes. There is a wide range available, from those for everyday use to specialist orthotics for sports enthusiasts or professional athletes.
