Clinical Gait Analysis

During the consultation we perform a thorough examination, including range of movement, muscle strength, hypermobility and spasticity.
We will also want to understand what your goals and expectations are from treatment. During consultations we will set out a plan for treatment and discuss what we think is achievable with our orthotics and your therapy programme.
Patient evaluations, orthotic and prosthetic conceptualisation, design of orthotics, disability solution sculpting. Our patients cover a full range of ages, from paediatric to geriatric. With case loads covering both neurological and orthopaedic conditions.
Footwear fine Tuning
Are designed to control abnormal motion. As no two patients are the same, orthotics are custom fitted to ensure the best compatibility, relief & ease of movement. The fitting process can take up to one or two hours, depending on the case complexity. Sometimes, more than one fitting is required for an orthosis to be fully fine tuned and finished.
WE WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY
With the orthosis. We want you to use it daily and feel like it is performing as we had intended. Therefore, we offer a free 3 month review service for adult patients. This means that if you have any problems that are not normal wear and tear, we will review them and correct the orthosis accordingly.
