Pressure Mapping Improves Footwear Product Design and Testing!
Determine if your product is performing the way you intended with Tekscan's objective, quantifiable pressure data. With Tekscan's sensor technology, you can analyze dynamic or static pressure distribution to enhance your product design. Our real-time, tactile pressure sensing systems include extremely thin, flexible sensors that do not interfere with the fit or design of your product. We cater to a wide range of applications and manufacture over 200 sensors in different shapes, sizes, and resolutions. Software features include ASCII data saving capabilities for further data processing and analysis as well as the ability to compare before and after data side by side.
F-Scan In-Shoe Technology for Footwear Research

Customer Success Story: Insolia®
Insolia was developed by world-renowned podiatrist Howard Dananberg, DPM. Insolia insole supplements are designed to shift the weight over a larger area and away from the ball of the foot, redirecting it back to the heel. It stops the foot from moving forward within the shoe thereby increasing stability and body alignment and improving overall posture and comfort. Dr. Dananberg used the F-Scan™ System to analyze the effectiveness of this product.
