Biomechanics research exists to optimize movement, function, and predict the consequences of interventions like surgery and assistive devices. Whether you are looking for biomechanical insights to develop footwear, artificial joints, or gain a deeper understanding of human/animal movement patterns, information from Tekscan pressure mapping technology can help.
By analyzing movements, forces and plantar pressure exerted by lower extremities, you are presented with objective data that visual assessments cannot provide. Tekscan empowers researchers/clinicians to easily detect asymmetries, develop injury prevention protocols, and optimize sports performance with a host of solutions designed to meet your unique needs.
Bilateral asymmetries are common in gait, balance and all types of movement. The key is quantifying the levels of asymmetries, which provide insights into pathologies and injury risks. Tekscan systems allow you to quantify this in an objective, accurate way. With actionable force and pressure data from Tekscan’s biomechanical assessment systems it is possible to evaluate the following applications:
Tekscan technology has been validated by leading researchers worldwide with thousands of publications ranging from studies evaluating the effect of gait training in elderly patients1 to the effects of energy drinks on postural stability2, you will find our technology in a variety of spaces.
