The Ledbrook Clinic has at its disposal the facilities of a fully equipped and professionally staffed Clinical Measurements Laboratory (gait lab) which is fully equipped with over £200,000 worth of the latest scientific technology. This laboratory is one of a very few available in the country for use outside of the NHS. It has the latest split screen video and dynamic force plate technology which enables the Clinical Scientists to produce 3D force vector images which we analyse to optimize the alignment of even the most sophisticated limb systems from around the World.
These facilities and services can greatly improve your gait and are a necessity when aligning the newer powered limbs and micro-processor swing and stance-controlled knee units available today.
Proper gait is based on timing and symmetry, our Gait Analysis and instruction helps you to achieve a more efficient, smooth and confident gait pattern that in turn will lead to a less tiring and more natural walk.
Using the Clinical Measurement Laboratory facilities, its professional Clinical Scientists and our expertise we break gait down into segments to obtain the best limb alignment and biomechanics, our analysis then also allows us to instruct you on correct posture and firing of your muscles. By videotaping you during the process, we can show you how to make these improvements and achieve an improved gait.
