Gait Analysis For Runners: A Modern Approach
'Gait Analysis can be a hugely beneficial tool when working with runners, but often not for the reasons commonly taught. Despite its traditional use to ‘screen’ runners for ‘biomechanical flaws’ & 'prescribe' footwear according to ‘foot type’, the success of such is often hit & miss. In this presentation, Siddharth Hans (Co-Founder of GaitON Motion Analysis System for Clinicians) & Matt Phillips (Creator of Runchatlive.com) discuss the elements of a 'Modern Approach To Gait Analysis', giving clinicians the tools to combine data produced by a modern motion analysis system such as GaitON with an evidence informed approach, enabling them to offer a Gait Analysis for Runners service that is not limited by a solely 'biomechanical' lens.'
