What We Do
Essentially, we produce a 3D digital analysis of your leg movement. At London Gait Analysis, we have established a standard protocol for analysing your movement.In order to obtain comprehensive results we test you walking on level ground and walking up and down a flight of stairs. The extra stresses incurred when using the stairs can show symptoms that may not necessarily show up under normal walking conditions.
Because we want to test you in a natural environment, we don’t use treadmills. Evidence has shown that the way in which you walk alters on a treadmill. Our analysis accurately captures the manner in which you walk normally, in everyday life.
Please take a few minutes to view this video clip which demonstrates exactly how our data is obtained.
As you can see from the video clip, we capture the data by measuring how you walk by monitoring lower limb movement using digital sensors. Immediately after the test is completed, analysis results are available to view on a computer screen. We simply connect the sensors to a PC or laptop and the software deciphers the results.
We can provide you with a printed version of your gait analysis to take away or alternatively, we can email the results as a PDF document.
