What is FootMat Software for Clinicians?

FootMat™ Software for Clinicians uses Tekscan’s pressure measurement platforms to collect accurate and reliable pressure data for analyzing foot function and gait. New automated analysis and reporting makes performing a complete analysis easier than ever!

Provide Objective and Accurate Information Save Time Analyzing Data Educate Patients
  • Improve patient outcomes and reduce the number of repeat visits with effective treatments
  • Quickly identify problem areas with objective pressure data
  • Instant view of left/right and medial/lateral weight distribution
  • Provide supporting documentation for fee-for-service approach and/or insurance claims
  • Easily interpret data & evaluate treatment efficacy quickly with comparison reports, graphs and charts
  • Automated Peak Pressure Analysis identifies peak pressure area for each foot
  • Automated 3-Box Analysis segments the foot into three key regions for a more detailed analysis
  • Visually present the effects of treatment to patients through FootMat software's automated reporting
  • Easily demonstrate problem areas with pressure profile visuals
  • Educate patients about their pathologies and communicate treatment plans with automated reports

FootMat Software for Clinicians Applications Include:

  • Identify/reduce incidence of ulcers and/or pressure sores by observing what the neuropathic foot cannot feel
  • Provide supporting documentation for fee-for-service approach and/or insurance claims
  • Identify plantar pressure profile asymmetries between left and right feet
  • Perform in-depth analysis of foot function by isolating sections of the foot, such as the heel, mid-foot, and forefoot
  • Review dynamic weight transfer and local pressure concentrations
  • Use as an educational tool to teach rehabilitation exercises for the lower limb

Technology to Validate Patient Outcomes

Easily monitor improvements in balance, strength and weight bearing with FootMat Software. Read the case study below to see how one clinician created an effective fall risk treatment plan. 

Fall Risk Case Study

Case Study: Fall Risk Assessment with FootMat Software

In this case study, a biomechanical specialist used MobileMat to evaluate an elderly patient having trouble maintaining balance on uneven terrain. The data he gathered resulted in an effective treatment plan, reducing patient sway by nearly 50% with eyes closed.

Automated Peak Pressure Analysis

  • Easy side-by-side comparisons of pre- and post-treatment conditions
  • Provides quick visuals in the form of graphs and pressure profiles
  • This feature segments the foot into three key regions for detailed analysis: heel, metatarsal and total foot
  • Foot function parameter tables includes contact times, loading and off-loading rates, center of force (CoF) velocities, and maximum force

  • Peak Pressure and Pressure vs. Time graphs
  • Table with the parameters for peak pressure, pressure time integral, and peak pressure gradient
  • Peak Pressure Gradient calculation automatically identifies and quantifies peak pressure location
    • Display pressure and force curves over time
    • Graph for Force-time integrals (Impulse)
    • Frame by frame, single, and multi-stance phase displays
  • Import and export client movie files
  • Display the Center of Force and its trajectory

FootMat Software for Researchers is also available. While both versions contain the same core features, FootMat Software for Researchers includes additional features for a more in-depth analysis.
