Gait assessment

Gait is the term used to describe the movements involved with walking. The foot, ankle, knee and hip move together in a complex set of movements which provide the propulsion we need to get moving and the stability we need to stay upright.

Iqbal, Leeds

"My physio explained what had happened, gave me a clear timetable for my recovery and gave me exercises designed to get me back to work as soon as possible."

Steve, Osmondthorpe

"My wife can now walk around the house with a stick, can use the stairs and is more able to do things herself. We feel it has been a great help as I don’t think I could have coped alone."
