Description

Distinguish Your Practice with FootMat™ Software

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 & Accurate Information

  • 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

Save Time Analyzing Data & Writing Reports

  • 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

Educate Patients

  • 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

Applications

Versatile Applications

  • 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
  • Use as an educational tool to teach rehabilitation exercises for the lower limb
  • 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
  • Identify areas of potential ulcerations

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. 

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.

 

 

Numerous articles have been published using our systems for foot function and gait analysis. Tekscan has compiled a list of these research publications in our Medical Bibliography.

Specifications

Accurate and Reliable Data Collection with Tekscan's Pressure Measurement Platforms

FootMat Software uses Tekscan’s pressure measurement platforms to collect accurate and reliable pressure data for analyzing foot function and gait. The software runs on the following pressure measurement mats

ClassicMat:

  • Consists of the low profile pressure measurement mats that made Tekscan a world leader in mat systems. Depending on your clinical, research or retail needs there are ClassicMat options available to you.

MobileMat™:

  • Our newest mat offering, available in standard resolution. The durable platform and enclosed electronics make these mat options highly portable with minimal set up time.
