Pressure studies

PressurePressure studies allow the clinician to see the pressures, centre of gravity and centre of pressure that is occurring with each step and, when viewed in combination with your previous history, examination and video gait analysis helps to build a picture of your movement and how this may link in with your pain.  In certain conditions such as Diabetes pressure studies have been proven to be useful in identifying potentially problem areas of the foot before any problems are seen (currently only available at our Northampton clinic). Pressure studies also contribute to your complete clinical gait analysis assessment.
