Striking Measures inspires researchers, clinicians, and retailers to elevate their professional endeavors with technology through a collection of content showcasing Tekscan’s pressure measurement systems and solutions.

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...
When developing or testing the effects of footwear design , in-shoe pressure measurement provides important data to understand foot motion and movement, and can even provide an indication of comfort. The ability to identify areas of high pressure in the footwear gives a warning to potential sources...
Gait analysis researchers are a data-driven breed. Your gait analysis depends on total clarity of your data capture, right down to the finest detail. With the Strideway™ modular gait analysis system , you’re never at the mercy of how your system averages or interprets your data; with...
When analyzing how a person navigates obstacles, maintains balance in moving vehicles and walkways, or adjusts their gait while crossing uneven surfaces, there is little that force plate technology can provide to enhance your research. The only way to really understand and measure the nuances that...
What is Gait? To truly understand pathologies or injuries in human locomotion, we must first understand the methods in which our patient or athlete needs to move. Gait (walking or running) is typically considered the method by which movement from point A to B occurs. Gait evaluation helps to...
As research helps drives clinical treatments and procedures, it is becoming increasing more important to evaluate humans in real-life environments. Data collected in a static environment like a laboratory does not always translate to the dynamic environments in which athletes perform in sporting...
After hours of gait data collection, there’s nothing more frustrating than to see your data isn’t as clean as you were hoping. Incomplete foot strikes, inconsistent asymmetries, or even assistive devices like walkers, canes, and crutches, can affect the quality and repeatability of the...

In sports and athletics research, there’s nothing quite like being able to capture quantifiable performance data from the arenas and venues where athletes perform. Much of biomechanics research focuses on improving or optimizing human movement. Moreover, having actual in-shoe gait analysis...
In prior posts , we’ve covered how Tekscan’s pressure measurement technology is different from force plate technology and how information from these types of systems can complement force plate data. Recently, at the 2019 American College of Sports Medicine conference (ACSM) in Orlando,...
As we’ve covered in previous articles , utilizing digital pressure mapping technologies to analyze gait function and pressure profiles is crucial for researchers to identify subtle but important asymmetries. Not only can this quantifiable data be used to diagnose gait and balance disorders,...
