Bluetooth-Enabled In-Shoe Natural Gait Analysis
Tekscan, Inc., recently introduce F-Scan64: A new easy-to-use wireless in-shoe pressure mapping system with a quick set-up configuration that offers greater flexibility to collect gait data for clinical research.
In-shoe pressure mapping technologies utilize ultra-thin pressure sensors that are designed to fit within a subject or patient’s shoe to record pressure data while performing dynamic actions. These sensors are connected to data-acquisition electronics that collect pressure data onto a device worn by the subject for analysis after data collection or transmitted wirelessly to a PC software program. Biomechanics researchers and clinicians use in-shoe pressure data to pinpoint issues in the gait cycle, identify and correct pathomechanical dysfunctions, improve athletic performance, and several other applications.
