Ask any podiatrist or researcher in the field of orthotics, and they’ll tell you: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all method to orthotic selection. Visual observation and patient feedback is the traditional method for assessing pressure redistribution before and after interventions, but this practice may lead to false positives, and even more confusion.
F-Scan™ in-shoe pressure measurement technology is a minimally-invasive method to capture insights on the effect of interventions, sharing data on potential pressure “hot-spots” within the patient’s shoe and identifying asymmetries that could cause complications.
Marshall Kendall, PhD., provides a first-hand look at the analysis capabilities F-Scan technology offers to your practice or lab, including a real-world assessment of a how a simple heel lift can change the gait curve.
