Gait and Running Analysis
Gait analysis, also referred to as running analysis, motion analysis or biomechanics. Whether as an activity on it’s own or a component of your sports, running has a crucial role in the practice of most sports, which is why getting it right is so important.
By working in a variety of sports at different levels of performance we have gained a wealth of knowledge in analysing applied running movement.
Maximising your performance and minimising any pain is our ultimate goal. We therefore recommend our clients to have a thorough analysis of their running technique when there is a need to:
- Identify biomechanical faults – i.e. incorrect patterns of movement when you run – leading to overuse injuries
- Improve your running technique, run with greater control to avoid early fatigue
- Improve your running economy – i.e. the amount of energy you spend to run a set distance
- Assess the effectiveness of your new or old running shoes in order to make sure that they suit your running style
What to bring on the day: your training gear, your new (> 6 months) and old running shoes, insoles/orthotics (where applicable), your training diary, your usual work/daytime footwear.
We analyse your running on a treadmill by filming you through different cameras placed in front, on the back and by side.
