A new technical system, CAREN (computer assisted rehabilitation environment), is described, which makes it possible to do a total body movement analysis in a virtual environment. The virtual environment is reproducible and as close to natural environment as possible. In a case study it proved possible with this system to test different shoes and get insight in the movement problems. The importance of whole body analysis is demonstrated in this case study. The adjustments made in the shoes could be tested for their efficacy.
