Instructor: Kylie Pearce, B.Sc (Podiatry), C.Ped
This Webinar is for Practitioners only
This webinar will provide an introduction to functional foot typing and gait analysis utilizing a simple 4-Step method of visual gait assessment. The presentation will give an overview of 24 variations of the “normal” adult foot, and protocols for classifying feet into 6 major subgroups or “Quads”. This 4-Step Foot Typing method is quick and easy to learn and will offer the practitioner a biomechanically based approach to gait assessment and foot classification. The participant will learn that each “Quad” presents with specific foot traits, such as arch height, toe sign, callouses, and gait pattern; which can predispose a patient to a particular array of clinical conditions.
Participants will be required to complete a post webinar quiz for CEU eligibility.
