Gait Analysis Systems

Innovative pressure measurement technology provides unique insight on foot function and gait, helping you determine the root cause of problems in the lower extremities.

As gait issues can be indicative of underlying health problems, identifying and addressing abnormalities and asymmetries is of the utmost importance. Tekscan's accurate and affordable computerized gait analysis systems are used by clinicians and researchers around the world to:

  • Identify and correct pathomechanical dysfunctions
  • Assess and improve athletic performance
  • Measure change after treatment
  • Ensure effective offloading to reduce plantar ulceration risk
  • Design new footwear products

Get actionable biomechanical data for gait analysis with our in-shoe or walkway based systems!

F-Scan™ System

for in-shoe gait analysis

Use F-Scan for in-shoe gait scansUse F-Scan for in-shoe gait scans

Thin, sizeable sensors inserted into the shoe allow you to see exactly what's happening to the foot during the stance phases of gait and activities.

  • Capture plantar pressure and force data
  • Patients move freely during testing in realistic environments
  • Educate patients about their pathologies and treatments with comprehensive reports

Strideway™ System

for walkway gait analysis

Strideway is Tekscan's walkway solutionStrideway is Tekscan's walkway solution

The Strideway System is the first truly modular gait analysis system in the industry, made up of tiles that click together to form the platform.

  • Scan and capture accurate force, pressure and spatial-temporal parameters
  • Easily compare left and right sides with symmetry tables
  • Gait cycle tables provide insights into stride  length, time, velocity and more

Best in Class Gait Analysis Software

Tekscan's gait analyzers come with comprehensive software. Actionable gait information is displayed in a variety of ways including graphs, pressure profiles, tables or charts to allow for rapid identification and assessment of asymmetries, abnormalities or treatment effectiveness.

Tekscan's 3-Box approach automatically segments the foot into three regions for a more detailed analysis of how the foot is functioning during gait. Additional insights include Center of Force movement and progression, as well as Force vs. Time graphics.

Designed with both clinician and patient in mind, our software is easy-to-use and allows for quick comparison of pre/post-conditions to monitor treatment progression.

Additional F-Scan Software Features

  • Auto-generation reports aid in patient education and documentation of treatment
  • Easily compare pre/post trial with reports
  • Use real-time visual feedback of data as a training tool
  • Several optional software add-ons are available, such as our Sway Analysis Module

Additional Strideway Software Features

  • Gait Cycle and Step-Stride tables provide individual data for each foot, and differences between the feet
  • Symmetry table provides a symmetry score (or index) between left and right sides (in %)
  • Evaluate timing insights for indications of underlying conditions or lack of bilateral symmetry

Feature-Packed, Configurable Gait Analysis Equipment

Tekscan's portable gait analysis systems are comprised of scanning electronics, software and sensors, and are available in a multitude of configurations.

Each system also provides the flexibility to synchronize with external equipment, such as motion capture or EMG. Additionally, video can be synchronized with the data to match patients' movements with the data displayed on the screen.

Finally, data can also be exported to Excel or ASCII for more detailed analysis tools.
