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,...
If you follow our blog, you may have seen our recent post about how pressure mapping complements force measurement in gait analysis . That post explains how Tekscan’s systems can enhance other gait lab equipment with additional data. Capturing something as complex as human movement or gait is...
How Pressure Mapping Complements Force Measurement in Gait Analysis
The analysis of human movement provides important information when trying to improve athletic performance, evaluate rehabilitation from an injury, or work towards injury prevention. Human motion is typically described using Kinetic and Kinematic characteristics. Kinematics characteristics include...
Tekscan provides accurate information empowering clinicians and researchers to increase the validity and effectiveness of treatments and/or research. Regardless of which system you choose, you are obtaining accurate, repeatable data for a broad range of tests and insights. Here are some key pieces...
We often hear about the research and clinical uses that Tekscan systems provide for humans, like gait analysis, balance testing, and athletic training. However, the capabilities of our technology reach even further than that. Think hooves, paws, fur, and feathers. That’s right—even...
