Run3D Post

gait lab

As a wise man once said there is gait analysis then there is Gait Analysis. Run3D is the latter.

Most running shops will offer a look at you running on the treadmill to help you choose you running shoes. But if you have a persistent injury or niggle that is not settling, or you would just like to improve your performance Run3D is for you.

Our MSK team at Zest can help with both runners and walkers to look at your control of your lower limbs and help you be your best or get you back out there doing what you love.

Run3D works by placing a series of markers on your legs and feet in very much the same way CGI characters in films are created in the studio. These markers allow us to plot your legs and joints in time and space using special cameras giving us a model of your walking or running. From this we can see where things are working well, or indeed not so well, and help you put things right.

Following the Run3D assessment we will create a custom report for you giving you all the information you need as well as an exercise plan or recommendations on how to improve your movement. From this we can work with you possibly providing orthoses, if indicated, to get you back to being your best.
