Biomechanical Assessment of Gait

70% of patients tested showed moderate to severe abnormalities when walking.

The human eye observes at a frequency of 7 images per second.

The Metascan™ pressure mat scans the stance phase of gait at 150 images per second.

  • Assess new patients for foot function
  • Captures dynamic function
  • Great communication to patient

70% of patients tested showed moderate to
severe abnormalities when walking.

46.8%    Moderate Abnormality
23.2%    Severe Abnormality
22.7%    Mild Abnormality
7.3%    No Abnormality

* Data on file. N=955. FMX 2004

 


 

Captures Dynamic Function

Dynamic ScanDynamic Scan

  • Compares walking and running scan data of the same patient
  • Proprietary diagnostic software analyzes digital pressure mat, patient data and translates it into a prescription for orthotics

 

 

 

 

Static ScanStatic Scan

  • Bilateral pressure distribution assessment and report
  • Useful in detecting leg length discrepancies

 

 

 

 

Postural ScanPostural Scan

  • Postural analysis to determine deviations in alignment, movement pattern and body symmetry
  • Visually observe postural movement over time (replay for analysis and patient education)

 




 

5 Key Parameters

  • Left and Right Forefoot Contact
  • Left and Right Heel Lift
  • Left and Right Maximum Forefoot Pressure
  • Where does maximum pressure appear?
  • Is the center of pressure line straight or curved?
