The Importance of a 3D Gait Analysis

We have a weekly livestream named PodChatLive for the regular professional development and education of Podiatric doctors as well as other health professionals which might be keen on the foot and associated issues. PodChatLive is broadcast live on Facebook and then it's modified to improve the product quality and then transferred to YouTube in order to reach a bigger audience. Each livestream includes a different guest or group of guests to talk about a unique subject in every show. Inquiries are answered live by the hosts and guests whilst in the live on Facebook. There's also a PodCast version of each show available on iTunes and also Spotify and the other common podcast websites that gets submitted after the initial live. The stream has created a large following that keeps getting more popular. PodChatLive is viewed as a proven way in that podiatrists may get free professional development points or education credits.

All the different topics is quite diverse. In the second stream as the concept of the livestream was still being created, the two hosts ended up being asked a live question that they did not feel competent enough to answer, so for the next livestream that they had on their first guest which was actually the start of the PodChatLive format. That first guest was Chris Bishop from Adelaide in Australia who is an authority for the 3D analysis of gait or the assessment of how that we walk or run using advanced technologies. The show discussed the main advantages of and disadvantages of these approaches for use by podiatrists and also the costs involved in setting up a facility to complete a high level 3D analysis of gait. The issue of how much the set up costs in relationship to the improvement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that chat. Chris was certainly a valuable guest and helped the hosts to check the format of having a guest on remotely during a live episode.
