3DO COMPUTERIZED GAIT ANALYSIS SYSTEM
Your feet are the foundation of your body. At some point 75% of the population will suffer from foot related problems. The foot is always in motion and is under enormous amounts of pressure from body weight. As you walk or run, our entire weight lands on our feet, up to 10,000 times a day. If there is an alteration in the proper foot mechanics you can develop foot, knee, hip and even back pain. Doctors and scientists know that with the proper support and biomechanics of the foot, most problems with the feet, legs and lower back, can be remedied. Orthotics are custom made shoe inserts that correct the movement and biomechanics of the foot. Orthotics help to control the way your foot functions. They are similar to insoles, except that they are custom made just for your feet. Orthotics can be extremely helpful for many deformities such as flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, heel spur syndrome and painful calloused with an underlying bone deformity. Foot Maxx orthotics are made from measurements that are taken by a computer while feet are in motion and weight bearing. You walk across a mat that is connected to a computer. The mat has 960 electronic sensor points built into it. As you walk, the mat scans your feet in motion 30 times per second, taking precise measurements throughout your footsteps of the way your feet touch the ground, and how you distribute your body weight. The information is analyzed by the computer to produce instant 2D and 3D images of your feet. The same information is sent to the laboratory through a phone line via modem. The custom made orthotic is then designed and fabricated from the scanned data. In less than one week, orthotics are on the their way to our office. Until a few years ago, many orthotics were bulky and patients had a difficult time fitting them in shoes. The new Foot Maxx orthotics are very thin and lightweight. They fit easily and discreetly into your shoes. You can wear your most stylish form fitting shoes, and still get proper support and correction from 3DO orthotics. If you have experienced this type of discomfort, we may be able to help you quickly, easily and painlessly. You may be surprised at how easily orthotics provide relief.
