TV report Tele Basel: Gait analysis

"They arouse little attention, but they are subject to great strain – our feet."

At the example of a hobby jogger and a walker, the TV report shows that we realize our feet only when they cause problems or pain.
The NUMO Systems gait analysis lab tries to get to the bottom of feet problems: After a static examination a dynamic measurement of the pressure distribution in the gait cycle is carried out.
And finally a CONTEMPLAS treadmill analysis: "A camera captures every movement from the dorsal perspective. A wrong position of the feet can have consequences on the upper part of the body. In slow motion every movement and every wrong position can be detected and analysed."

Analysing and measuring the videos with the TEMPLO software, Laurent Hoffman realises, that in the present case in the stance phase of the foot "the foot is inwards rotated", which can put too great strain on certain tendons.
As a result of the collected information, the problems of the hobby jogger could be solved with the prescription of insoles. She can now jog free of pain again.
