Gait Analysis – Foot Pressure Measurement

With the assistance of computer software and special pressure detectors the foot pressure measurement evaluates gait quality and pinpoints incorrect load points in order to later suggest a personalized solution by way of an orthotic.
The foot pressure measurement is an examination that collects information on the anatomic morphology of the foot (flat foot, cavus foot, varus forefoot, etc.) and the pressure applied to the feet when walking (in the case of an athlete his/her running and jumping are also evaluated) or standing.
The data from the measurements is sent to the computer software, which analyzes them and compares them with normal values (norms). The information is evaluated in collaboration with the referring physician and if it is deemed necessary, the patient is recommended to place special orthotic insoles in his/her shoes, which are manufactured solely for the patient based on the foot pressure measurement results.

Indications for performing the foot pressure measurement are:

  • Patients with Leg length discrepancies (shortening)
  • Diabetic patients or postoperative diabetic foot
  • High-arched foot (cavus foot)
  • Flat feet
  • Heel spur and dilated plantar fascia
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Calluses
  • Sports Injuries

The foot pressure measurement in each patient will help in choosing the appropriate orthotic insoles with a view  to increasing performance.
