The assessment of your condition entails discovering the cause of your pain, so that we can guide you through the most effective treatment. At Médicus, a complete biomechanical analysis is conducted: your gait, posture and joint movements are examined in a precise and detailed study. Whether focussing on the feet, knees, legs or back, this assessment is the best way to target the musculoskeletal disorder that is causing your discomfort.
A biomechanical assessment is a tool used to study the relationship between your joint structures and their physiological functions while walking. In addition to this examination, the orthotist also analyzes your posture. This process allows them to establish an overall portrait of the mechanics of your body and to identify any anomalies that could affect its equilibrium.
The biomechanical and postural assessment includes several steps:
Once the assessment is completed, two options are possible:
If the treatment plan recommends wearing any orthoses, measurements and a mould are taken for the laboratory design of your custom orthoses.
The assessment provides a complete and comparative analysis of the foot structure, ground pressure points and biomechanical alignments. The distribution of the center of gravity while standing still or walking is then identified. Imaging draws a portrait of the foot structure and pressure levels that can affect performance and comfort.
The advanced technologies used by Médicus ensure you receive personalized service and an optimized orthotic treatment plan. This biomechanical assessment results in an evolutionary and quantifiable treatment year after year.
