Bradford House Chiropractic Clinic in Winchester is proud to be able to offer the TOG Gaitscan system to all patients.
TOG Gaitscan is the most technologically advanced gait analysis system available today. It comprises a plate covered with thousands of tiny sensors that accurately measure the distribution of pressure through the sole of the foot, both standing (static) and walking (dynamic). The information from these sensors is then processed through specialised computer software to provide a 2D or 3D visual representation of the pressures under the feet and a detailed analysis report. This aids your chiropractor in evaluating your foot function and determining your need for orthotic (custom insole) therapy. If orthotics are recommended for you, the wealth of information from the gait scan and the chiropractor’s evaluation of your foot biomechanics are combined to produce an individual prescription which is used by the Orthotic Group laboratories to manufacture your custom foot orthotics.
The orthotics are essentially a custom made insole, generally made of flexible, moulded thermoplastic (typically 2-3mm at their thinnest point) and fit comfortably in the shoes. There is a wide range available, from those for everyday use to specialist orthotics for sports enthusiasts or professional athletes. Please see our main page headed About Orthotics for more information on the orthotic styles available and answers to common questions.
