Gait Analysis

We offer a free Gait Analysis at our Whirlwind Sports Stores in

Truro, Penzance & Helston

A typical Gait Analysis takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to complete by our fully trained staff.


What is a Gait Analysis? Gait analysis is the formal measurement of walking and running patterns, a Gait Analysis test is used to determine the best footwear for your running style.

How is it done? At Whirlwind Sports, we will access your stationary foot using a foot posture index and then observe your gait using a treadmill and video analysis software. Once analysed our fully trained staff can recommend the best footwear for you.

Why is this important? The repetitive nature of running can (and probably will) cause injuries to occur if the footwear used doesn't match your running requirements.

Who will benefit? All runners regardless of their running level or training load. Whether you're jogging around Cornwall or running a marathon, a gait analysis from Whirlwind Sports will help you.
