Motion Analysis Lab

A Motion Analysis Laboratory uses modern computer technology to obtain a detailed report of how different parts of the body interact when they are in motion. This information is then compared to normal movement patterns. By studying the differences, an individualized treatment plan with recommendations for spasticity management, braces, physical therapy and/or surgery can be developed. To obtain a gait study, please feel free to contact us.
