Cherry Creek Foot Clinic is excited to announce a new partnership with the Orthotic Group, a world leader in custom orthotics, orthotic footwear and revolutionary computerized gait analysis technology. The GaitScan is an innovative diagnostic tool and digital casting device that allows practitioners to analyze patient biomechanics and order custom orthotic products. With 4096 sensors and a scan rate of 300 frames per second, GaitScan is the industry leader in dynamic scanning capabilities.

What does this mean to you? A new, in-depth method of asssessing your gait cycle with dynamic scan gives your podiatrist access to a wealth of information that cannot be obtained with a plaster cast, or the naked eye. Over a million points of data are recorded, tracking minor flaws in your biomechanics and shedding light on issues that if left untreated, could develop into painful conditions over time.

The TOG GaitScan is a valuable education tool that provides practitioners with a comprehensive biomechanical analysis for each patient as well as clear, consise images to articulate the need for orthotic therapy.
