MSK Biomechanics & Gait Analysis

MSK Biomechanics & Gait Analysis

Biomechanical Assessment

Hands-on assessment from the hip down – diagnosing MSK conditions including hips, lower limbs, knees and feet

Your MSK Podiatrist will carry out an assessment using traditional methods, much of which is based on experience. Tried and tested methods will allow the Podiatrist to provide a treatment plan based on his/her findings, which can be backed up by latest technology used for a Gait Analysis.

Digitsole PODOSmart – the smart insole solution for biomechanical assessments and gait analysis using artificial intelligence

If you play sports, walk, run, or use your feet majority of the times, then this assessment is highly recommended for you.

The PodoSmart system accurately measures your walking or running profile and gait in real life conditions within just a few minutes. The PodoSmart system works with intelligent insoles, a Bluetooth transmitter and a web interface to view results. The intelligent insoles feature several sensors that detect the smallest foot movements and a microprocessor that calculates the Biomechanical data. The dedicated PodoSmart platform allows us to view all the data linked to the activity and analyse the results immediately.

How it works

Soles for shoes

The patient will be provided with a pair of Digitsole smart insoles to insert into his/her shoes. These are then paired via Bluetooth to the PodoSmart connection box. The patient will be asked to go for a walk or a run, before returning to the clinic.

Podosmart interface

When the patient returns from his/her walk or run, all the data that has been collected by the Digitsoles smart insoles will be transmitted via Bluetooth to the PodoSmart connection box. The connection box will then transfer all data from the patients Gait Analysis to the dedicated PodoSmart software.

Podosmart software

The dedicated PodoSmart software allows the Podiatrist to view and analyse all the data that has been collected, in the form of numbers and graphs, which helps to prepare a bespoke treatment plan.

Treatment Plans

Biomechanical assessments and gait analysis help identify the need for correction, which is done using orthotics, also known as insoles.

However, sometimes the problem lies within the actual muscles. If this is the case, then the Podiatrist will prepare a stretching and strengthening exercise program specifically for your problem. With the use of Physitrack software, we can provide you with the best treatment plan possible.

If the assessments fail to identify any problems, then the Podiatrist may still be able to suggest further areas of investigation that can be pursued to reach a diagnosis. We understand that the worst thing about pain is not knowing the source, so we will do everything possible to help you.
