Biomechanics Made Easy: $35.00
Wednesday, March 30th 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
In this hands on workshop, the doctor will learn to perform visual static and dynamic gait analysis, interpreting key weight bearing compensations in order to differentially interpret a patient’s foot type. Doctors will come to understand how the specific gait sequencing of each foot type may predispose an individual to a certain set of pathologies. Assistants are invited to register! Assistants are taught how to implement the algorithmic process to classify an individual’s foot into one of 6 major foot, or “quad” types.
