What is the 3D evaluation of gait?
There's a weekly livestream named PodChatLive for the regular professional development and education of Podiatry practitioners as well as other health professionals that might be interested in the foot and connected issues. The show is streamed live on Facebook and next it's modified to increase the quality and then transferred to YouTube in order to reach a wider audience. Each live show has a different guest or group of guests to talk about a singular topic in each livestream. Issues are answered in real time by the hosts and guests while in the stream on Facebook. There's also a audio edition of every livestream available on iTunes and also Spotify and the other usual podcast services that gets submitted after the original livestream. The stream has developed a significant following that keeps getting more popular. PodChatLive can be regarded as one way in which podiatrists might get free professional improvement hours or continuing education credits.
All the different subject areas is quite diverse. In the 2nd stream as the idea of the show was still being produced, the two hosts were asked a live question that they did not feel qualified enough to answer, so for the next livestream 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's an authority for the 3D evaluation of gait or the appraisal of how that we run or walk using state-of-the-art systems. The edition discussed the advantages of and shortcomings of these systems for use by podiatrists and the expenses associated with establishing a facility to do a professional 3D analysis of gait. The problem of how much the setup costs in connection to the improvement in clinical outcomes was a fundamental part of that discussion. Chris was certainly a valuable guest and allowed the hosts to try the structure of getting a guest on from another location within a live episode.
