Balance and symmetry is vital to all human movement, but especially important when it comes to gait analysis. Abnormalities and asymmetries can signal underlying health problems, many of which may go unnoticed by visual observation alone. Truth be told, humans have a tendency to mask these...
Marshall Kendall, PhD. When selecting corrective footwear or orthotics for your patients, understanding how your decisions may affect human gait becomes a lot more complicated than what meets the eye. Some individuals may have gait asymmetries without any clear visual signs, or any presence of pain...
Knee surgeries, particularly meniscus repair surgery and meniscectomies, have become very common. While traditional meniscus repair surgery is relatively low risk, there is a potential for adverse reactions. Orthopedic researchers work to validate the effectiveness of surgery techniques and test...
Nachi Chockalingham, PhD. The biomechanics research community is a tight-knit and passionate group. Over the last few decades, few researchers have shown that passion on display quite like Nachiappan ‘Nachi’ Chockalingam, PhD. Nachi is a professor of clinical biomechanics and the...
gait technology options
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...
Did you think the F-Scan™ system was just for measuring in-shoe pressure? Well, you're in for a surprise. Occasionally, one of our users or partners will share a new way they are using their F-Scan system in ways we never considered – even with animals! Here are two recent examples from...
From measuring pressure distribution from impacts, to in-skate foot function analysis, there are several ways to use Tekscan technology in ice hockey studies. Ice hockey is one of the fastest and most dangerous sports played worldwide. Its players are celebrated for their toughness, quickness, and...
Ask any podiatrist, and they’ll tell you: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all method to orthotic selection. Every patient requires a unique approach to understand his or her needs for fit and comfort. There’s only so much visual observation or force plate technology can...
A commonly debated question in gait research surrounds the best methods to capture the most natural gait. Force plates may be one of the more accurate tools available, but that can come with some limitations – especially when working with animals. The weight of the animal, paw size and their...
Collecting and analyzing joint biomechanics data is a complicated process, often requiring several systems to capture essential data needed for analysis. With this in mind, the BioRobotics Lab has developed a solution to help streamline and simplify this process – the simVITRO system . Their...
