FootMat™ Software for Researchers uses Tekscan's pressure measurement platforms to collect accurate and reliable pressure data for analyzing foot function and gait. Perform a complete foot analysis by capturing static pressure data or dynamic pressure data of multiple steps for gait assessments.

Research validated system for accurate and consistent data

  • Calibrate the platforms specifically to meet your needs, there is no need to send the system back to the factory for calibration
  • Pressure Measurement platform is used by leading researchers around the world
  • Focused software for foot function and gait analysis

Unrestricted data analysis

  • Data export capabilities for a more detailed analysis include Excel, ASCII, MATLAB
  • Evaluate data in frame by frame, single or multi-stance phase modes

Compatible with gait lab technology

  • Synchronize with external systems like motion capture, EMG and force plates for a more complete picture
  • Remote triggering option allows you to synchronize the start and stop of data collection with Tekscan and other gait lab systems

Save time in analysis with automation of specific protocols

  • 3-Box analysis: Segment the foot into three regions for deeper analysis
  • Peak pressure analysis: Identifies and quantifies peak pressures


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 studying foot function and gait. The software runs on the following pressure measurement mats


  • 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.


  • 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.


Optimize Data Analysis

FootMat™ Software for Researchers provides accurate pressure data for studying foot function and gait with added features specific to research applications.

Key software features include:

  • Automated analysis & report generation
  • Ability to segment areas of the foot for a more detailed analysis
  • 2D and 3D display for real-time and recorded data
  • Display pressure and force curves over time
  • Side-by-side comparisons of pre- and post-treatment conditions
  • 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
  • Analyze data for asymmetries in pressure distribution, deviations in the center of force trajectory and weight bearing
  • Foot function parameter tables display information on contact time, loading and off-loading rates, center of force (CoF) velocity information for an in-depth analysis

Versatile Applications

  • Identify plantar pressure profile asymmetries between left and right feet
  • Perform in-depth analysis of foot function
  • Review dynamic weight transfer and local pressure concentrations
  • Identify asymmetries during stance phase
  • Study peak pressures on the plantar surface
  • Evaluate center of force (CoF) movement
  • Evaluate biomechanical pivot phases of the foot (heel, ankle, forefoot)

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.
