Run 3d is the most advanced form of gait analysis.
It's been brilliantly described as an MRI of your movement!!
The system is far more advanced than video-based analysis as it enables us to:
1. Accurately identify the root cause of a musculoskeletal overuse injury and recommend the optimal treatment pathway
2. Recommend evidence based treatment protocols based on precise data
3. Prevent injuries before they occur by identifying and addressing biomechanical risk factors
We attach small reflective markers to your legs and shoes, positioned on specific anatomical landmarks.
Using the exact same technology as specialist orthopedic hospitals and elite sports performance centers, our infrared cameras measure the position of these markers 200 times a second and use the data to create an accurate 3D model of you walking and running.
You will walk or run on the treadmill and we quantify exactly how you are moving in real-time.
We accurately measure the 3D movements at your pelvis, hips, knees and ankles, and compare your results to a database of uninjured controls in real-time. This enables us to immediately identify any asymmetry and abnormal patterns in your gait.
(Gold Assessment only)
Carrying out an MSK assessment in combination with the Run3D analysis allows us to fully understand why you move in a certain way which gives us the first steps to putting it right. Aswell as your alignment we carry out a series of tests to check muscle strength, flexibility and neuromotor control
Flexibility testing- Hip flexor and internal/external rotator muscles, ITB, Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Gastrocnemius and Soleus, and 1st ray movement
Strength testing- Using a dynamometer we test strength in hip flexors, internal and external rotators, abductor muscles, Hamstrings, ankle invertors and evertors
Alignment testing- We assess the rearfoot, tibial alignment, Q-angle, leg length, and arch height
Our experts will review your report, using the information to fully understand your biomechanical function.
The Run3D solution enables us to understand the cause of your injury, which is the first step to an effective and long-term rehabilitation plan.
We pride ourselves in giving you the best rehab care you need to get you back on your feet.
We believe that in order to achieve the best outcomes for your injury/ complaint a more holistic approach is needed. From the results of your Run3D assessment we look at a whole range of treatment options, for example:
"I came to see Louise due to ongoing hip pain when I started the couch to 5K. The results showed me exactly the areas I needed to work on, and I am now working towards my goals! Thank you Louise!"
" Absolutely brilliant bit of kit. I found out exactly what my orthotics were doing to my gait. Turns out I didn't need orthotics afterall, but just needed a rehab programme to help my movement"
