Gait Analysis

Footscan Gait Analysis at Run and Ride, Stafford

Provided by Footscan

Accurate Dynamic Gait Analysis with Footscan.

The Footscan® system consists of a platform with sensors that capture the different pressures, both statically and dynamically, during the different phases of foot support during gait.

It allows us to diagnose with high precision the type of footprint, detect its alterations, risk factors for injury, causes of pre-existing pathologies and customise orthopaedic, sports, functional, or comfort insoles.

All Gait Analysis appointments are charged at a flat rate of £20.


Our service is far more advanced than the simple smartphone & treadmill 'technique'.


Balance Assessment

The RS Footscan® is advanced technology in measuring pressure and force distribution accurately at high speed and high resolution. The data collected is very sensitive to change, providing a clear clinical picture and objective measure of an individual’s static standing balance through measurement of the level of postural sway, weight distribution through the feet and location of the centre of gravity.

Furthermore the Footscan® system use small sensors that are 5mm x 7mm, these allow accurate analysis of pressure deviations under all the regions of the foot. This is necessary to get a clear picture of foot mechanics.

Gait Analysis.

Your foot is in contact with the ground for about 0.8 of a second when walking and about 0.25 seconds when running. This is too difficult for even the most experienced practitioner to see with the naked eye. Therefore as you walk across the RS Scan footscan® pressure plate. It will scan your foot at 500hz using 4096 pressure sensors. This generates quantifiable static and dynamic measurements providing your physiotherapist with comprehensive data regarding the pressure distribution of your feet.

The advanced software allows automatic division of the foot into specific regions. This allows force and pressure distribution within these areas to be analysed and associated with certain foot mechanics and functions.

Force and pressure distribution in all regions of the foot can be analysed in graphical format allowing insight into force and pressure in both localised and general areas under the foot during stance phase and gait.


Gait Analysis is best utilised when purchasing a new pair of shoes. This way we can make specific shoe recommendations based on the data results as well as our thorough product knowledge.
