The Foot Scan allows static and dynamic measurement. In the static measurement (in standing position) the patient stands on the carpet measuring the balance and distribution of the CoG. The patient walks freely on the carpet and the extracted information is very important and useful for determining both the correction and rehabilitation of the existing problem. Some of the information goes as follows:
The recording of high plantar pressures, the balance, the comparison between the two flanges, the mounting surface, the position of the heel, charging the arch and the deviations of different angles or distances from the axes chosen by the examiner, and two-dimensional or three-dimensional imaging.
• This analysis does not stop here, but continues further with the film of analysis, comparison, its categorization, the average pressure, the residence time pressures, etc.
All this data is absolutely useful because it document both the underlying disease, injury or condition (neurological, musculoskeletal disorders in adults and children), and the choice of treatment to follow. Application fields are numerous according to the literature, relating to:
Sports: In fatigue syndromes, tendonitis, fasciitis, anatomical peculiarities, etc., which impact both the foot, and the (knee, hip, waist) throughout the kinetic chain.
Pediatrics: Walking disturbance, such as vlaisoplatypodia, varus, equinus, adduction of the metatarsal, neurological diseases, and so on.
Pathology: Metabolic diseases such as diabetes and complications of a foot. The detection of plantar pressures is paramount to reducing ulceration, and thus mutilations.
Surgery: Before and after surgery, the metatarsal.
Rheumatology: Particularly in rheumatoid arthritis because of deformities in the soles.
Neurology: From diseases that affect the cerebellum and balance.
Traumatology: After fractures, sprains, etc., and a long list of other ailments.
