Biomechanics and Motion Analysis

 

Initial appointments include a comprehensive biomechanical Assessment and motion analysis to objectively quantify dynamic lower limb movement.  This can then be logged and a comparison made following treatment to improve alignment, technique, strength and efficiency.

Definition of biomechanics

Biomechanics is the study of the mechanics of a living body through the application of physics, especially of the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure.

Motion Analysis

Contemplas professional motion analysis software is utilized to investigate dynamic lower limb function.  The software enables slow motion capture of walking, running, jumping and cycling technique whilst having the added advantage of being able to sync several videos to assess functional or alignment alterations when shoes orthotics or exercises are upgraded.
