May the Ground Reaction Forces Be With You

This entry was posted on , by .

There is no better feeling than chasing down a personal best and achieving a goal. It is hard, takes time and can be frustrating when injury stops you in your tracks. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way of knowing if your shoes and running technique were complimentary or if you were gaining optimal efficiency from your action?

How understanding force, energy and pressure will change your running technique forever.

A treadmill is an invaluable tool when it comes to sports, gait analysis and running technique evaluation. The Zebris FDM is a state of the art treadmill system that incorporates thousands of force pressure sensors and high-speed digital camera analysis, allowing the clinician the ability to assess all relevant gait parameters. The system analyses multiple steps, not just one or two, giving a better representation of your individual style. This means, you know how much pressure is under your foot, if your stride length is even, and more importantly, what you need to do to improve

The system is only available at Hinkler Podiatry. Phone or book online at www.hinklerpodiatry.com.au and free your feet from injury.
