Tekscan pressure mapping, force measurement and tactile sensors using the Tekscan Mobile Mat
Tekscan's patented tactile force measurement and pressure mapping will provide actionable information about unbalanced pressure and force of your feet. Tekscan sensors and systems are used in a wide range of applications for understanding and treating your source of pain or poor function. We help create a better plan that is easily visualized and understood.
Pivot Phases in Gait
There are three primary pivots in gait: the heel pivot, the ankle pivot, and the forefoot pivot.
Tekscan's 3-Box approach allows you to visualize the foot for a more detailed analysis of these three primary pivots of gait. The Gait Curve shows total vertical ground reaction force from heel strike to toe-off.
The Force vs. Time graphs for the forefoot and heel provide for specific loading patterns during heel contact and forefoot contact, independent of and in conjunction with the Gait Curve.
Tekscan systems provide objective, quantifiable data from heel contact to toe off during the full gait cycle. Unique insights from these systems help you identify asymmetries and abnormalities which otherwise might go undetected.
Tekscan can help identify:
Pinpoint issues in the gait cycle
Identify and correct pathomechanical dysfunctions
Improve athletic performance
Measure change after treatment
Plantar pressure profiles of pressure distribution
Pressures and forces during gait displayed in time graphs (gait curves)
Position and trajectories for center of force (CoF) during stance phases of gait
Force and pressure time integrals (impulse)
