Orthotics and Gaitscan

Orthotics and Gaitscan

At MOSC Physiotherapy we utilise the latest technology to ensure we give you the most accurate information about your problems. When it comes to lower limb and low back issues, we use GaitScan to get it right.

GaitScan™ is a state of the art computerised scanning system that helps your physio analyse your feet and their movement. This analysis combined with your physiotherapists’ experience and knowledge detects abnormal foot function which may be affecting your feet or other parts of your body.

Your foot is in contact with the ground for about 0.7-0.8 of a second when walking and about 0.25 seconds when running. Imagine trying to determine normal or abnormal foot function with the naked eye in three quarters of a second?  This is too difficult for even the most experienced practitioner.  The GaitScan™ system records your timing sequences and pressure distribution as you walk across the pressure plate, which enables your physiotherapist to have a clear picture of your foot mechanics and determine whether you would benefit from wearing custom-made foot orthotics.

Orthotics are devices worn in your shoes that provide correction to your feet, helping them to function more efficiently. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of various problems such as foot pain, hip pain, knee pain and back pain. Prescription orthotics may help relieve your pain by realigning and stabilising the bones in your feet, restoring a more normal walking pattern and unloading certain muscles and joints that are under excessive load.

Foot pain, knee pain, hip pain or back pain which may have plagued you for years, could be the result of fallen arches, bad posture or inappropriate foot care. Using our expert physiotherapy knowledge, MOSC Physiotherapy can help. As experts in physiotherapy related foot care, we deliver a range of physiotherapy treatments and techniques, including orthotics that can successfully treat foot-related problems.

Custom-Made Orthotics Using State Of The Art Equipment

MOSC Physiotherapy use our state-of-the-art equipment to assess your foot structure and body alignment for orthotic needs. Using this information, we can prescribe and develop custom-made orthotics or pre-fabricated orthotics, depending on the requirement, in order to successfully treat your foot disorder.

Not Happy With Your Orthotics? Take Advantage Of The Sixty Day Refund

We are committed to helping you resolve your foot related problems. The nature of orthotics is such that it can take a period of ‘wearing in’ before they adjust to your footwear. If you wear a range of shoe types, this will again affect how they ‘wear in’. For up to 60 days after receipt of your orthotics, if you continue having problems, you can speak to MOSC Physiotherapy about your options or return them for a full refund.
