Ask any podiatrist, and they’ll tell you: There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all method to orthotic selection. Every patient requires a unique approach to understand his or her needs for fit and comfort. There’s only so much visual observation or force plate technology can provide.

In order to really understand the patient’s needs, you have to take a walk in their shoes.

Podiatry and orthopedic researchers turn to the F-Scan™ in-shoe pressure mapping system to capture quantifiable data to assess pressure redistribution for orthotic selection. The ultra-thin and trimmable F-Scan pressure sensing matrix fits seamlessly into the contours of a patient’s shoe. This allows podiatrists and researchers to:

Profile pressure distribution before-and-after orthotics

Identify potential pressure “hot-spots” within the shoe that could cause other complications, such as blisters or ulcers

Determine pressure is being offloaded properly, and whether adjustments to the orthotic may be necessary

Identify whether the orthotic changes behavior while the subject pivots, runs, jumps, or makes other dynamic movements
