The Dartfish system employs high-speed video analysis to capture how a patient walks. The process is then viewable in slow motion, with areas of interest able to be highlighted and magnified. A podiatrist can then distinguish between normal and abnormal gaits, identifying any issues easily.
To do this, the system uses a treadmill, two video cameras and a laptop computer that has special software installed. After the gait is captured, the patient can be shown still pictures and drawings. These can also be sent to a laboratory, where they can be analysed by healthcare experts in conjunction with our podiatrists.
