3D Gait Analysis systems allow us to examining how your child
is walking by looking at the movement and forces through
individual joints, such as the hip, knee and ankle. This
is performed by placing a set of reflective markers on the
skin of the child, these markers are tracked by our camera system,
so we can see where the child is within our lab. Through
computer processing we are then able to see how the individual
joints move during walking.
Video allows us to record how your child was walking at the
time of the appointment and any measures that were made.
Video is taken at different angles ( front, side, close up of
feet) so we can get a good overall view of your child's
Our EMG system allows us to monitor the electrical activity of
the muscles as your child walks. Small electrodes are
placed on the skin that are able to pick up the small electrical
signals produced by the muscles. This helps to indicate at
what time muscles are active.
