Using traditional physical assessment techniques and a state-of-the-art scanner, we analyse your gait to provide information on how you are moving, standing and balancing.
Our physiotherapists are experts in assessing how someone is moving, what muscles are being used and what can be optimised to enable them to move better or be stronger. Combined with our state-of-the-art gait scanner, we use 2D and 3D information to obtain a complete understanding of the issue.
