Matscan Floor Mat System

MatScan® System

Low-profile floor mat that captures barefoot plantar pressures and forces.

MATSCAN PRESSURE MAT SYSTEM FEATURES:

 

  • Low-profile floor mat that captures barefoot plantar pressures

  • Objective and quantified data can be analyzed to support diagnosis and mode of treatment

  • Provides insight into foot function and biomechanics

  • Identifies regions of high plantar pressure that cannot be seen with the naked eye

  • Available with either Evolution® or VersaTek® electronics

  • USB connection

  • Platform height of only 5mm

  • Scanning speed of 100 Hz with the #3150 sensor and Evolution electronics or 440 Hz with the #3150E sensor and VersaTek electronics

  • 3 hardware choices available: Tethered, Wireles, and/or Datalogger. See 'System' tab for more details.



 

BENEFITS OF PRESSURE MAPPING:

 

  • Expand your practice through proactive foot screenings

  • Reduce incidence of ulcers and/or pressure sores

  • Observe what the neuropathic foot cannot feel

  • Provide supporting documentation for fee-for-service approach and/or insurance claims

  • Use as an educational tool to teach rehabilitation exercises for the lower limb

MATSCAN SYSTEM COMPONENTS

System Setup System Description System Components

MatScan Tethered

Tethered

*Evolution system shown above

Wires connect the sensor and scanning electronics from the floor mat to the computer via USB port. Dynamic events are captured with scan rates of 100 Hz (Evolution) or 440 Hz (VersaTek).

MatScan Datalogger

Datalogger

Collects and stores sensor data in its internal memory for upload to a computer at a later time. Ideal for use when a recording needs to be made over an extended period of time. Scan rates of 440 Hz can be achieved.

VersaTek Cuffs  -  Every VersaTek based system uses specially designed scanning electronics called Cuffs. The Cuffs connect to the sensor, gather the data from the sensor, and then process and send this data to your computer via USB connection. VersaTek electronics sample at the fastest speeds and are compatible with other VersaTek sensors, giving you the ability to add in-shoe, prosthetic, grip, and seating & positioning capabilities to your Tekscan System.
