Our in-store gait analysis stations comprise of a treadmill, camera, and a laptop equipped with industry-leading Dartfish software.
The first stage of the process is to capture a short video – around 20 seconds – of you running on the treadmill in a neutral shoe with little or no cushioning. This will help to highlight abnormalities in your gait.
Based on an assessment of the footage, we’ll then select a second pair of shoes suited to your foot type and the way in which you run. This will either be a stability – sometimes called structured – shoe to correct pronation, or a neutral shoe for runners with a neutral or overpronated/supinated foot motion.
After you’ve completed the second run, we’re then able to compare the footage side by side and assess the results.
