Which In-Shoe Gait Analysis System is Right for Me? In-shoe gait analysis technology provides insights into what is occurring inside the shoe. But not all in-shoe systems are the same. There are many different types of in-shoe system out there to meet a variety of different needs. Depending on if...

Are you considering gait analysis technology for your research? Pressure measurement systems – such as the F-Scan™ in-shoe systems, and the Strideway™ modular gait analysis platform – offer flexibility and objective analysis capabilities to capture information that may be going unnoticed by visual...

A new research paper in “The Foot” titled “Reliability of F-Scan® in-shoe plantar pressure measurements in people with diabetes at risk of developing foot ulcers” has just been published. We took this opportunity to ask one of the authors of this paper, Dr. Ulla Hellstrand Tang, a few questions...

There is no one-treatment-fits-all approach when offloading patients suffering from non-healing ulcers. Without a clear method to analyze what exactly is happening inside the patient’s shoe, clinicians may start along a potentially time-consuming guess-and-check process, which can become a...

The details matter whenever working with children through their biomechanical challenges, especially children with motor disabilities, like Cerebral Palsy (CP). With the help of technology, clinicians can use objective data to help make important decisions to aid a child to improve their balance...

This is Part 1-of-3 virtual presentations shown at an lerEXPO event titled “Biomechanics: Using force and pressure to analyze foot function.” Stay tuned for other presentations in the coming weeks. Along with visual observation, biomechanics researchers employ technologies to measure vertical ground...

Youth sports are important to a child’s growth in many ways. Not only are athletics a great source of exercise to help them develop strength and endurance early in their lives, but they teach children important life skills around teamwork. However, injuries are always possible with all athletic...

While animals lack the ability to speak a language, there’s a lot that can be learned about their health simply by observing their walk. Veterinarians and animal scientists are trained to identify visual clues of animal lameness, orthopedic disease, and other kinetic/kinematic traits that could...

Have you ever considered the types of testing that footwear undergoes prior to making it to stores? You’ve probably seen advertisements from footwear companies or material suppliers stating “the most comfortable,” or “the most durable” when referencing their shoe line, but there actually is a lot of...

The following case study was provided by David Sutton, a certified Pedorthist and clinical advisor. Off-loading a Charcot foot deformity and a fused ankle can make for a real challenge, not just because of the changed function but, also the altered shape of the foot and the history of ulcers. These...
