Biomechanics research is a vast field of study that calls for advanced technologies to obtain objective data that influence clinical decisions. Over the last several decades, biomechanics researchers have employed thin, minimally-invasive pressure mapping technologies as a key research tool in their repertoire.
These technologies offer head-to-toe applications to analyze movement, forces, and plantar pressure exerted by lower extremities, to deliver insights that visual assessment alone cannot provide.
This eBook will provide a deep overview of Tekscan’s complete portfolio of technologies for biomechanics research, covering several applications and research examples, including:
- Detecting asymmetries
- Developing injury prevention protocols
- Improving surgical techniques
- Capturing data for footwear and orthotic design
- Assisting in rehabilitative programs, and much more
