Our approach to biomechanical assessment

The Glasgow Treatment Hub biomechanics and orthotic centre is a Gait and Motion approved clinic. As such we have both the Footscan pressure system and are also able to provide Phits orthotics as well as other 3d printed orthotic devices.

Whilst we do have these technologies we still undertake the process of casting for custom foot orthoses where it is more appropriate to do so. We believe strongly that whilst these technologies are extremely useful as part of the assessment process. They are not a substitute for clinical experience and knowledge.

What is the purpose of a biomechanical assessment?

When you have aches and pains or issues which occur when moving or walking, it is important to understand the route cause.

A biomechanical assessment is the process of assessment to establish exactly why you may be experiencing pain. Often foot pain, leg pain occur due to small alignment or inappropriate movements result in pain over time.

These movements may be subtle or not always obvious. As such, we use special technologies to analyse your movement and what compensatory movements may happen as a result.

These technologies include video gait analysis, plantar pressure analysis and 3D scanning to assess your alignment and movement. It is important that the clinician undertaking this assessment has specialist knowledge in this area.

The Glasgow clinic has clinicians with this specialist knowledge and have been leaders in this field for many years.

Sport Orthotics is part of the largest clinical network of orthotics and biomechanics clinic in Scotland.

We are the preferred providers of orthotics for many professional football clubs and professional athletes. We have been doing this since 2007 and over time have become the go to clinic for both athletes and people just wishing to deal with their aches and pains.

Used as the preferred referral partners for many private orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeons in the West of Scotland.

At our Glasgow clinic we provide the full range of orthotics.

A brief overview of the various types of orthotics is given below.

  • Traditional custom orthotics:- These are made in our own orthotic lab. We make these from a non-weightbearing plaster cast of your feet in the correct position. We then make these in our lab to the custom prescription. To find out more about our custom orthotics click here 
  • Phits and 3D printed orthotics:- Phits orthotics are 3d printed orthotics made using specialist pressure readings of your feet. These orthotics are then 3D printed. 3D Ortho is a specialist range of custom additive printed orthotics. For more detail on both Phits and 3D ortho then please click here
  • Ankle foot orthotics (AFO's):- Ankle foot orthotics are available at this clinic. Our Orthotists can custom design your orthotics dependent on your issues. To find out more information on AFO's then click here

Podiatrist and orthotist biomechanical assessment

podiatrist and orthotist biomechanical assessment

We provide biomechanical assessments at our Glasgow clinic. This is delivered by our Orthotists and Podiatrists.

A biomechanical assessment is the process to understand the cause of your pain or discomfort.

A biomechanical assessment is useful to establish why you may have the pain or discomfort with the following  issues.

  • Arch/heel pain (plantarfasciitis)
  • Forefoot pain (metatarsalgia)
  • Shin splints
  • Flat feet (planovalgus)
  • High arches (cavus feet)
  • Arthritis
  • Foot drop
  • Neurological conditions

As part of the biomechanical assessment we also undertake foot pressure analysis.

The purpose of this is to take exact data on how each foot takes weight in standing, walking or running.

This data is used in conjunction with the findings of your biomechanical assessment. It is particularly useful in patients who have specific areas of pain on the under side of the foot (plantar aspect).

But it also helps with looing at how your foot functions through out the gait cycle when your foot is on the ground.
