Static baropodometry


Clinical use. It is used in all pathologies of the foot (hollow, flat foot, its degree: 1-2-3 °; hemicvism, strength deficit) in developmental or adult age of various etiology and variously treated (with no orthosis; surgical, medical therapy )

Procedures. The indicators used are:

1. structural indicators (geometric areas; point analysis, high resolution or Hi-Res, isobar or points of equal pressure)

2. functional (surface; distance CoP-geometric center; foot axis, foot angle, distance CoF-beat, distance Cof-footboard, distance CoF-CoP, position of the CoP)

Execution time: 5 seconds without orthoses (orthotics, other); 10-15 seconds if with orthosis (above the insoles, with shoes and insoles; other)

Conclusions. Within 30 minutes the operator analyzes the data (indicators), prints the graphs and concludes, delivering everything to the patient in a sealed envelope.
