Foot Pressure scanner | PT-SCAN
PT-Scan is a high resolution/speed foot scanner to capture plantar pressure and plantar force in standing position or walking (stance phase) for both adults and children. It is a foot pressure scanner for recording and analyzing the pressure distribution of the foot.
PayaTek foot pressure scanner meets all the needs of specialists in diagnosing and choosing the best treatment method, by thorough examination and providing precise details of standing, walking and maintain balance.
Also, the powerful and detailed software of this product has made it possible for specialists to accurately measure and examine any point or area of the sole.
PayaTek foot scanner features:
- Smooth and accurate display of the foot pressure distribution
- Scanning rate up to 400 Hz
- Perform three tests of static, dynamic and static balance
- Low mat height 0.7 cm
- Easy plug and play technology with USB connection
- Compatible with gait lab technology, such as EMG and motion capture systems
- For multi-step analysis, check out our Gait Analyzer for human gait analysis
PayaTek foot pressure scanner is used to:
Diagnosis of foot arch type with accurate static and dynamic analysis
One of the most important applications of foot scanners is to detect the foot arch type and to examine the Plantar pressure distribution profile.
Identify areas prone to ulcers in the foot of neuropathy
The cause of diabetic foot ulcers is usually the deformed structure of the foot skeleton due to neuropathy, which causes unusual plantar pressures. Research shows that 20% of hospitalizations for diabetics are due to foot ulcers. Specialists use foot pressure scanner to identify areas prone to ulcers in a diabetic patient and to take preventive measures such as using appropriate insoles and shoes.
Lower extremity rehabilitation exercises training
Many diseases related to foot and back pain can be treated with appropriate corrective exercises. The intensity and correct direction of these exercises are accurately calculated using a foot pressure scanner.
Determine the asymmetry of the foot pressure profile between the left and right feet
Asymmetry of foot pressure profiles and force diagrams between left and right feet in three areas of forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot is an accurate report that allows a comprehensive and accurate study in kinematics and disease recognition and selection of the best treatment plan.
Observe the COP line and dynamic weight transfer then check the postural stability
The COP Line represents the coordination of the nervous and muscular systems. Any abnormalities in normal gait and balance are evident in the COP. Also, foot scanner examining the angle of this curve, so we can find anomalies that are directly related to the legs, such as supination and pronation.
In-depth analysis of foot and gait performance using balance screen charts for heel, mid-foot and forefoot
PayaTek foot scanner using this diagram shows the amount of heel rotation during a step and the balance of force in different plantar areas. Using this diagrams and comparing them with the normal state, it is possible to determine where each correction element should be placed in the designing a customized medical insole.
Follow the treatment process and confirm the effectiveness of the treatment plan
Patient satisfaction with the chosen treatment plan greatly enhances the effectiveness of treatment. A foot pressure scanner is a device that helps monitor the healing process. In this way, simply communicate effectively with the patient and gain his trust in the treatment plan
Examinations performed by PayaTek foot scanner:
PayaTek foot Scanner “PT-SCAN” performs three tests: static, dynamic (gait stance phase) and static balance.
Static test in PayaTek Foot Scanner – Foot pressure measurement in static mode
In this examination, the patient stands on the surface of the device normally and in standard position.
The software determines the patient’s foot pressure distribution data for each foot, arch type of the foot in static position, the displacement of body center of gravity and comparing the similarity of left and right foot.
Dynamic test in PayaTek Foot Scanner – Foot pressure measurement in walking mode
In this test, the patient normally takes a step on the device and passes. Each foot (left and right) is tested separately. The software provides detailed reports about arch type in gait mode, COP Line (center of pressure), foot axis angle, high pressure points of the foot in gait cycle (Avg.& Max.) and…
Static Balance test in PayaTek Foot Scanner – Scan center of gravity shifts while maintaining balance
In this test, the person stands on the surface of the device for 10 seconds and tries to maintain balance. The duration of the test can be changed at the discretion of the doctor. This test shows the amount of deviations in the musculoskeletal balance.
