F-Scan GO is the next generation of the award winning F-Scan in-shoe gait analysis system.
The F-Scan In-Shoe system is a compact, new generation technology for clinicians and researchers that provides dynamic pressure, force and timing information for foot function and gait analysis. Information obtained from the F-Scan is used in real-world applications, like designing and testing orthotics, offloading diabetic feet and evaluating footwear and techniques in elite athletes.
The lightweight, cord-free, wearable electronics with onboard storage lets your subject enjoy full freedom of movement while you capture their natural in-shoe gait with the highest resolution data in the market.
Freedom of Movement: Cord-free wearable ultralight electronics encourages natural movement. No cables or cords, and no distance limitations allowed full freedom of movement for any advanced gait study.
Unique Information: The highest resolution sensors available provide accurate in-shoe measurements. Having the ability to compare peak pressures before and after orthotic intervention greatly enhances the efficacy of treatment. The F-Scan go gives you the most sensor data points at highest scan rates for the most detailed and accurate gait assessment on the market.
Versatile: Perfect for both the gait lab and in the field, the versatility of F-Scan GO makes it the preferred choice for use in applications that are central to Biomechanics research. It is highly portable and can be used in almost any environment, its data can be easily exported, and it synchronizes with external devices; such as EMG and Motion Capture, through external trigger input controls.
Powerful Software for impactful insights: Tekscan's next generation of research software – improved interface, more intuitive, and enhanced for use with a tablet. FootVIEW simplifies data collection and analysis and provides a user-friendly layout using docking regions that allows the user to easily organize information in dashboards.
Best in Class Sensors: F-Scan GO sensors have optimal spatial resolution for in-shoe pressure measurements, and the highest resolution sensing on the market. The wearable sensors are ultra-thin, yet durable enough to last for multiple trials.
The F-Scan GO was designed for the needs of biomechanics researchers, with features like:
Synchronization capability allows for integration with other equipment in the gait lab
Compatible with external synchronization (Video, motion capture, force plate, EMG) and other Tekscan systems
ASCII Export allows sensor data and graphs to be imported and analyzed in external software.
Optional Data Reader Toolkit library for direct integration with external software for analysis of recorded data
All in a system with the highest sensor resolution and fasted sampling rate, and sensors a natural gait environment with the thinnest in-shoe pressure mapping sensor on the market at 0.28mm.
Accurate, Reliable, Best-in-Class Sensors
F-Scan GO sensors have optimal spatial resolution for in-shoe pressure measurements, and the highest resolution sensing on the market. The sensors are ultra-thin, yet durable enough to last for multiple trials.
Sensor Model: 3010
The standard in-shoe resistive technology sensor used for the F-Scan GO. The new E-Tab sensor is designed for less bulk and easy connection to the electronics.
"One power of the F-Scan system lies in the immediate and totally obvious visual feedback. Most cases are definitive even without referring to the staggering ability of the software to represent the data in any way you can think of. This simplicity combined with the fact that it is a foolproof means of pre- and post-testing treatment methodology makes this system invaluable to the clinician."

How Does it Work?
F-Scan GO TekDAQ Wearable Wifi units have embedded Wi-Fi datalogging capability. TekDAQ units communicate directly with the PC through the included TekDAQ Wi-Fi Router.
You can watch real time pressure data captured in the software over WiFi while configuring. The FootVIEW software communicates with the devices to capture real-time data, calibrate the sensors and control recording. When you start recording, data is collected directly to Micro SD cards in the TekDAQ units at a sampling speed of up to 500 Hz. At the completion of each recording, the recording data is automatically transferred back to the PC over WiFi to provide immediate access for analysis. This allows F-Scan GO to have the fastest possible sampling speed, even when connected over WiFi.
