Footscan is an in-depth running and orthotics assessment designed to help you harness your strengths and identify your weaknesses, so you can achieve your running goals faster, without injury.
While performing a dynamic gait analysis, our physiotherapists use the latest Gait and Motion Footscan technology to identify any issues or imbalances when running.
Footscan records a number of objective measures including foot shape, pressure mapping and weight distribution. With the real time visual data on screen, your therapist will talk you through the results, what they mean, your diagnosis, and, how the design of your custom Phits orthotics can help improve your running performance and reduce your risk of injury.
Phits are the world’s first high-tech 3D insole, helping to offload and support areas of high pressure and instability, relieving any symptoms that may be causing you pain, or holding back your running performance.
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just getting started, our Bodyset Footscan & Orthotics service is designed to help you reach your running goals faster and without injury with the support of bespoke orthotics and personal running performance plan.
As many as 79% of runners sustain a running-related injury each year, and a large majority of these injuries stem from foot placement - the way in which a runner's foot lands on the floor as they run. We want to provide you with the most up-to-date knowledge and technology available to support your feet, stay injury free and running for longer. We want to you to be able to run further and faster with less effort, and a reduced risk of injury.
After a Footscan & Orthotics assessment you’ll have a stronger understanding of your running technique, more knowledge on how to avoid injuries, your very own detailed footscan and orthotics analysis with the option to purchase custom orthotics. Plus, a a detailed plan on how you can run better, and faster, for longer.
