Advanced Foot Care is a Podiatry and Footwear clinic established to enable patients not only to get the best treatment but also obtain expert advice on footwear and footwear fittings.
Since opening its doors in early 2008 Advanced Foot Care has helped thousands of people using advanced computer gait (walking analysis) and postural analysis equipment.
The clinics have pressure gait analysis and video gait analysis platforms that are almost 4 meters in length. These platforms consist of thousands of pressure sensors that can measure high pressure areas on the foot particularly useful in diagnosing fore foot pain or pain under the ball of the foot. These pressure scans are also useful in assessing how the foot is being used functionally while walking.
These platforms are also integrated with video gait analysis which measures differences in leg length, along with joint angles, to gain a thorough understanding of how the patient is walking and how the body is responding through postural compensations. Both the pressure analysis and video analysis can be captured simultaneously so they can be analysed together in real time.
Jason Larkin founding podiatrist of Advanced Foot Care commented 'The great thing about these long platforms is you don't have to adjust the way you walk when being assessed. Often I see people being assessed on small pressure mats where they have to adjust their stride to make sure they hit the mat with the correct foot. This can actually change the way you walk considerably potentially throwing the pressure analysis results way off.'
Since opening in Hervey Bay in 2008 Advanced Foot Care has also opened the doors to the Bundaberg clinic utilizing the same state of the art equipment which has enabled the Hervey Bay clinic to succeed. Both of these clinics are have state of the art gait analysis platforms and both stocking an excellent choice in quality footwear.
