Gait Analysis (Optogait ) is an innovative system that assists with movement analysis and functional assessment of patients with normal or pathological conditions.
The objective measurement of such data, combined with an integrated video acquisition, allows monitoring of a patient’s condition on a constant basis, detecting problem areas, assessing mechanical inefficiencies and rapidly verifying the existence of asymmetries between the two legs.
In essence, the Optogait system allows our therapists to assess every step and stride. This innovative technology allows our practitioners to precisely analyse movement and provides a real-time functional assessment of gait mechanics and patterns in individuals with both normal and pathological conditions.
Clinical benefits of Gait analysis
Objectively assess the general physical condition of a patient and view results in real-time.
Identify inefficiencies, asymmetries, deficiencies and other issues, such as postural problems, through objective data and video to comprehensively determine how performance is impacted.
Develop customised rehabilitation approaches, orthopedic solutions, educational recommendations or other treatment protocols based on precise and accurate data.
Prevent relapses or re-injury and determine the effectiveness of treatment and solutions or to assess causes of setbacks.
Verify the efficacy of insoles, arch supports or functional tape within dynamic situations.
Assess how various shoes or adaptations impact a patient’s gait.
Active Release Technique is a cutting edge hands-on treatment method to address soft tissues issues related to muscles, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. By locating & treating the soft-tissue adhesions with ART®, it allows the practitioner to break-up restrictive adhesions, reinstate normal tissue flexibility & movement, and more completely restore flexibility, balance, & stability to the injured area and to the entire kinetic chain.
Graston Technique® (GT) is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post surgical. Our unique technique and instruments enable us to address scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation and to administer effective range of motion maintenance programs.
Lightforce® laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for many pharmaceutical drugs that are used to elevate soft tissue injuries.
