Patient Evaluation

At Stride, Inc. we have a thorough, state-of-the-art evaluation center including Video Gait Analysis and biomechanical evaluation. This assures you identify your pathologies and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Video Gait Analysis

Stride, Inc. uses state of the art video gait analysis in the delermination of a patient's foot pathology and foot type. Patient's are videoed on a treadmill and then our practitioners assess muscle function during gait as well as foot mechanics during different phases of gait. This assessment aids in fabricating the most corrective foot orthoses possible for the patient.

Custom Foot Typing

The "24 Foot Types Algorithm" is a clinical algorithm identifying 24 unique foot-types. These 24 foot-types are subdivided into 6 groupings of 4, known as “quads.” Each quad has its own very specific foot and gait characteristics. A patient’s foot-type (quad-type) influences not only their gait, but the conditions that may afflict them throughout their lives. This modern theory takes into consideration the clinical impact of these foot types on foot biomechanics, muscle function during gait, and how the mechanics of each foot type can predict a patient's predisposition to particular musculoskeletal pathologies. This assessment is based on the examination of pathological gait conditions, resulting from the occurrence of rearfoot varus deformities (compensated and uncompensated), forefoot varus and forefoot valgus deformities, as well as their combined effects.

Your Clinician will determine your foot type using several methods of assessment, including weight-bearing and non-weight bearing techniques. Once your foot-type is determined it will assist us in customizing a treatment plan that best suits your pathologies.
