Scanning Systems, Body Pressure, Plantar

Definition : Pressure Scanning systems designed to provide images of the pressure exerted by the foot on a fixed platform while standing. These systems usually include a floor platform with many pressure sensors, a data processing unit, software, and a monitor with a display that shows images and data related to the pressure exerted by each foot region. The monitor is used to provide color images (i.e., a pressure mapping) according to the pressure values and also data related to other foot characteristics (e.g., foot size, arch type, high pressure points). Plantar pressure scanning systems are used to help in the selection of appropriate foot orthoses and also in the diagnostic of other orthopedic problems.
