- View the walking or running style of an individual
in slow motion, with frame-by-frame
- Show movement technique
of current with best images, together with the back-up verbal
instructions and biomechanical analysis.
- Create lines, angle alignment guides to X
or Y axis, point trajectories, linear
speeds and accelerations for use in detailed analysis
- Measure angles, i.e. hip
extension, knee flexion, tibial varum etc. against
x or y-axis in static or dynamic motion.
- Record development in children,
such as degree of genu valgum or angle and base of gait on
a biannual or annual basis.
- Review posture after exercise therapy, manipulation
or before and after orthoses.
- Capture and print digital colour images for
the production of reports.
- Can be used on site and easily moved to take
frontal, sagittal or posterior views.
In addition, can be used in the field to capture sportsmen
and women performing their specific activities.
- Review differences in running
style barefoot or in different types of footwear.
- Combine analysis with RSscan International
- Create a ‘blueprint’ of a sporting technique,
correct posture or normal gait
– save on computer.
- Evaluate limb length
discrepancy before and after heel raise and footware

‘Quintic’ Digital Video Analysis
Software and RS scan ‘Footscan’:
The use of kinetic, RS Footscan,
and kinematic, Quintic Video,
analysis can give some insight into the biomechanical
cause of an injury. To illustrate their usage and application
to injury analysis, the following case study is presented:
A 31 year old Nationwide Division One Striker presented
with an Achilles tendon injury. Previous injuries include
bilateral ACL Repairs and an Orthopaedic pinning of the
