Sports biomechanics defines the body in motion and the physical loads that effect performance and may cause injury. For example, gait analysis allows us to investigate how a runner or walker moves. This understanding has important implications for athletic footwear design and prescription, injury prevention strategies, and technique modification for performance enhancement.
At active feet, our Sports Podiatry team are focused on delivering a shoe based on your individual foot and lower limb pattern, at your typical walking or running speed. It is no accident that all brands have multiple models within their range. These models are designed in part to facilitate support or encourage motion for varying body types, foot types and technique. With our treadmill gait assessment, we are able to see how the shoe really behaves under load, from heel strike, to midstance to the toe off phase of gait.
With the most advanced expertise Podiatrically, we are well placed to ensure we provide you with unsurpassed service and advice. Best of all, it is FREE.
