What is Gait Analysis?
Computer gait analysis has advanced significantly since the 1970s and 1980s. It is not only used to diagnose and treat podiatric issues. This analysis is also used in sports medicine to optimize athletic performance. The main advantage of this analysis is that your gait is highly individual.
The way you move and how you distribute shock or pressure from your foot upwards is unique. In fact, gait analysis can be used to distinguish a person's identity. While this is of great use to the biometric identity community; the podiatric community has known the value of gait analysis for decades.
