What is the SB Matâ„¢?

The SB Mat™ is Tekscan's wider, more durable pressure mat for sports performance assessments. Paired with our software, the mat allows you to gather quantitative data needed to make return-to-sport decisions, assess injury risk, and track progress over time.

SB Mat Features & Benefits

  • Durable, thin, portable platform the size of two force plates
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Collect data anywhere at anytime in just a few minutes
  • Scanning speed of up to 100 Hz
  • Provides objective insights into bilateral asymmetries
Example data captured during a squat test.Example data captured during a squat test.

The SB Mat is Used by Clinicians and Researchers to:

  • Test athlete functions: squatting, hopping, take-off
  • Evaluate balance and stability
  • Identify inefficiencies due to asymmetries
  • Capture baseline data to develop training programs
  • Assess patient progress & treatment plans
  • Provide visual feedback to athletes
  • Demonstrate the effects of movement/training with real-time data 
  • Make informed decisions about return-to-sport and injury prevention
