Book Your In-store Gait Analysis
Appointments are free with the purchase of running footwear. A video gait analysis involves observing someone walking and running on a treadmill, whereby it is filmed from behind and physically observed from all directions.
The footage is then analysed by one of our highly qualified staff using Dartfish Video Analysis software which enables us to replay footage in slow motion, as well as giving us the facility to measure angles and synchronise video clips side by side.
From this information the correct type of footwear can be identified. This helps us to analyse differences in gait patterns between running with old or unsuitable footwear, and new footwear suited to your biomechanical needs.
You will run on the treadmill for a short period of time (around 10 seconds) whilst a video clip is taken; once this has been taken, one of our qualified members of staff will talk you through the stages of the gait cycle, and answer any questions you may have about what is happening in the video.
After looking at the video we will endeavour to recommend suitable footwear to ensure that any inefficiencies or problems identified in the gait analysis are catered for. Bring your current pair of running shoes to your appointment to help give us a more in-depth analysis.
Please note that a £15.00 charge applies when not purchasing footwear.
