We are very excited to report that very soon we will bring some very new technology online at our Mississauga and Brantford office locations. Not only is this a first for us, but this is brand new to Ontario and in fact most parts of Canada.
This Pedigait system will and has proven invaluable as a clinical diagnostic aide replacing previous attempts to assess patient gait and locomation in a busy office settting. The advantage of this system is that dynamic foot function can be viewed and captured by Four high speed digital cameras similtaniously. The Podiatrist can then review the images in crystal clear slow motion later, consult with other specialists if necessary, and compare to previous video captures of the same individual. The most important of all uses, is that these amazing four views can be utilized during consultion to give patients a clear understanding and vision of their funtional problem and how it is effecting their gait. Previously we have been forced to rely on the ability of the practioner to describe the functional anomally using xrays and foot models to illustrate their complexity and severity.
We look forward to our ongoing relationships with the visionary staff at Pedi Technology in Montreal, and commend them on the terriffic advancements the have achieved over the last few years. We will continue with a handful of other Podiatrists and Chiropodists to develop the clinical applications of this technology and with Pedi make refinements.
For clinical practioners keen to view this technology in action or avail of its potential benifits for your own patients then please contact our offices and we advise you of a clinical location close to you where the systems are in place.
