Biomedical Assessments

Biomedical assessments begin with taking a thorough history of your symptoms and pain. This gives us the best possible understanding of what’s going on and means we can take account of any problems you’ve experienced previously.

Depending on what further information is required, you’ll be referred for scans such as x-rays, MRI scans, or ultrasound scans to really give clarity about the health of your feet.

3D Laser Foot Scans

Every biomedical assessment also includes a 3D laser scan of the feet. This provides a detailed analysis of your foot’s structure and can form the basis of custom orthotics if you need them. The 3D scan can also help to give indications about the best type of footwear to improve your symptoms.

Image Based Assessments

In addition to image-based assessments, we also analyse and test a number of areas of your gait and mobility. These include your foot posture, pressure, strength, and coordination, the range of movement you have available, and your gait whilst you are walking and running. Combined with image-based assessments, these detailed analyses give us a highly accurate and in-depth view of the health of your foot.

Based on this, we’re able to recommend the most appropriate treatments for your individual circumstances.

Treatments

The recommendations we make for your treatment will be based on the outcomes of the biomedical podiatry assessment. Depending on the results, there are a variety of different options that might be recommended for you. These include orthotics, inserts for your shoes, or a referral to a specialist footwear service.

Other treatments we might suggest for you include massage and acupuncture aimed at improving flexibility and pain-related symptoms, or referrals to other healthcare professionals for additional treatments or further assessment. We know that every patient is different, and only recommend treatments that are appropriate to your specific requirements.
