Biomechanics is the study and science of movement of the human body. Specifically with our practice it is the physics of the position and movement of the bones and joints of the foot/ankle.
Q: What types of technology and equipment do you use to treat patients?
We utilize cutting edge technology in both the non-surgical and surgical portions of the practice. For example our biomechanics lab utilizes 3D laser scanning combined with videographic analysis and sensors to provide the most accurate orthotic devices. We offer cutting edge materials (carbon fibre) for all our orthotic devices that allow for maximum correction with the thinnest device profile. Surgically our physician uses the latest technologies including minimum invasive techniques, stem cell therapy, endoscopy, laser treatment, and surgical implant materials.
