Pressure Mapping for Patient Care, Medical Research, and Animal Studies


Medical Pressure Mapping


The search for cost-effective tools in the prevention and management of pressure-related problems for at risk patients has been a constant source of frustration for clinicians and hospital administrators. Tekscan's pressure measurement devices provide accurate, reliable data that is outcome focused and provides important insights into foot function and gait. This information is an important quantitative adjunct to other qualitative assessment tools, assisting the clinician in providing results-oriented, cost-effective assessments and preventative care.

Our medical pressure sensors and systems help in:

  • Developing and evaluating orthotics, prosthetics and braces
  • Optimizing custom seating and positioning systems
  • Evaluating animal gait and lameness
  • Pressure offloading
  • Concussion assessments
  • Diabetic foot treatments
  • Designing and developing pressure-reducing support surfaces
  • Orthopedic joint research
  • Balance & Stability


Each system comprises innovative scanning electronics, application specific sensors, and unique WindowsTM-based software designed for the specific application. A health care provider can now make immediate assessments of the patient's need for clinical intervention in anatomical areas instead of guessing. Our systems provide measurement data in real-time and enable the clinician/researcher to instantaneously capture and store the data for more detailed examination.


Complete Pressure Measurement Solution


The analysis of dynamic or static pressure distribution revolves around Tekscan's innovative, real-time, tactile sensing systems. These systems are capable of measuring critical patient/surface interface pressure with minimal interference. Extremely thin, flexible sensors accommodate most contours and provide highly accurate local pressure readings. Tekscan's pressure sensors provide the most appropriate spatial resolution required for the medical application under consideration. Vivid graphics, displayed on a PC, make the information easy to interpret and provide the clinician with excellent documentation.
