What is FootMat Software for Researchers?

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 unrestricted data analysis compatible with gait lab technology save time in analysis
  • 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
  • Data export capabilities for a more detailed analysis include Excel, ASCII, MATLAB
  • Evaluate data in frame by frame, single or multi-stance phase modes
  • 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
  • 3-box analysis: Segment the foot into three regions for deeper analysis
  • Peak pressure analysis: Identifies and quantifies peak pressures

FootMat Software for Researchers Applications Include:

  • 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
  • Evaluate center of force (CoF) movement
  • Identify asymmetries during stance phase
  • Study peak pressures on the plantar surface
  • Evaluate biomechanical pivot phases of the foot (heel, ankle, forefoot)
