3D Gait Analysis

Stop all the guess work, with objective & measurable data

Running is a great way to both get healthy and stay healthy. However, without the proper precautions, foot & ankle injuries can occur. Many running injuries are linked to various compensations within the foot, ankle, knee & hip. Our services can help you undertsand your running or injury in more detail. We can identify cause of injury, assess ways to reduce the risk of injury & imporve perofrmance from a tehcnique point of view along with ensuring you are in the right running footwear & foot orthoses are doing what they are designed to do.

What is involved  

Run3D gait analysis uses infrared cameras to accurately measure positions of markers attached to a person’s lower limb. Data is then used to calculate joint angles & velocities at the pelvis, hip, knee & ankle. This allow us to understand how a person is moving & when compared to a database of uninjured normative control groups allows us to establish any risk factors that may be contributing to injury.  


Additional measures of strength, joint mobility, balance & alignment can also be compared as is often used to gain a further insight into injury when combined with 3D gait analysis or on its own to assess any abnormal biomechanical function, asymmetry or strength deficits, that may be contributing factors to injury or reduced performance. Data can then be used to imporve treatment outcomes.  

How 3D gait analysis & strength testing can help

Running injuries are complicated, caused by a multiple of factors. Successfully treating a running injury is complex, requiring an understanding of running, identifying its likely cause & identifying any risk factors that may account for re-occurring problems.


3D gait analysis & strength testing aims to help by using objective & measurable data to identify injury risk factors, analayse pelvic, hip, knee & ankle positions, stability & control along with understanding the influence of running footwear/foot orthoses on lower limb motion. Our 3D gait analysis & strength testing asessments  provide accurate data about your running gait, injury or footwear needs far beyond that offered in running stores or the vast majority of sports injuries clinics.

3D Gait Analysis 

£155

A detailed history of your medical & injury history including training load & goals is taken. 


Using 3 infrared cameras & Quintic high definition video analysis, we accurately measure 3D motion of your pelvis, hip, knee & ankle. This enables us to identify 

  • Injury risk factors
  • Asymmetries
  • Abnormal gait patterns 
  • Running footwear/foot orthoses & their influence lower limb motion.

We provide a written report & can design & provide an individual plan that can include

  • Rehabilitation exercises

  • Gait re-education advice
  • Advice & recommendation on running footwear
  • Orthotic therapy

If you currently work with a physiotherapist the report can be used to outline key areas to work on.

3D gait Aalysis + Strength Testing

£255

A detailed history of your medical & injury history including training load & goals is taken. 


Using 3 infrared cameras & Quintic high definition video analysis, we accurately measure 3D motion of your pelvis, hip, knee & ankle. This enables us to identify 

  • Injury risk factors
  • Asymmetries

  • Abnormal gait patterns
  • Running footwear/foot orthoses & their influence lower limb motion.

Along with 3D gait analysis we provide strength testing, which is used for injury specific analaysis of strength deficits, imbalances or asymmetries. Our strength testing can include

  • Lower limb strength testing
  • Lower limb range of motion & flexibility
  • Balance analysis 
  • Assessment of lower limb alignment & function

We provide a written report & design & provide an individual plan that can include

  • Rehabilitation exercises
