The foot pressure recording and gait analysis system DIERS pedoscan allows the pressure distribution on the human foot tobe captured and displayed quickly and precisely, while standing or while walking. Many clinical issues concerning the objective and quantitative analysis ofpressure distribution, pressure peaks, and movement asymmetries as well as the rollover behavior are recorded to help diagnose foot malformations or functional limitations of the lower extremities. The precise, high-frequency measurement technology allows all users to record and document even rapid movements of the body’s centre of gravity and load changes. The direction of travel can be set in the software along one axis to allow for time-saving dynamic measurements in two directions. The high-frequency measurement of the body’s centre of gravity (min. 100 Hz) provides additional information about neurological issues and extends the range of application to (competitive) sports.
