What is Gait Analysis?

Gait analysis is a way of assessing the way in which you walk or run. It helps us to identify the best solution to give you stability and comfort whether you’re standing or on the move.

Running Bear’s gait analysis service is there to make sure you’re in a properly fitting pair of shoes, suitable for the specific distances and surfaces that you’re exercising, walking or standing on.

Running Bear is proud to offer our customers bespoke and personalised gait analysis by one of our in-store specialists. You can meet the team by clicking here

 

Why is Gait Analysis Important?

We are all different and so are shoes. It is not only important for the correct type of footwear to be comfortable but that they support your own personal foot shape, your running or walking style and are ultimately suitable for the purpose you want them for. Running Bear can help you choose the right pair of shoes that can improve your efficiency, reduce injury and give you confidence in whatever it is you choose to do in them. 

How do we do Gait Analysis?

Our Running Bear specialists will discuss your specific needs with you; what you’ve done in the past and what you plan to do in the future. We’ll assess you on a treadmill or even out and about around Alderley Edge before providing you with advice and guidance on the perfect shoes for you.

    Great advice and encouragement. (Treadmill assessment, free of charge) We left with reassurance and the right shoes for my daughter's running gait. Faultless customer service. Can't recommend enough. 2/13/2019
