What is the MatScan™?

The MatScan™, part of the ClassicMat family, is Tekscan's low profile foot pressure measurement platform. Combined with Tekscan's innovative pressure sensing software, the mats can be used for a variety of applications such as foot function analysis, gait analysis, postural stability, sway analysis, fall risk assessments and pressure offloading.

MatScan™ Pressure Mat System Features

  • Low-profile mat - platform height of only 0.225 in. (0.57 cm)
  • Quick and easy set up with USB connection
  • Provides objective and quantifiable pressure data
  • Compatible with gait lab technology, such as EMG and motion capture systems
MatScan is used by both clinicians and researchers.MatScan is used by both clinicians and researchers.

The MatScan System is Used by Clinicians and Researchers to:

  • 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
