After the loading of 600N, the changes of the plantar pressure in forefoot were measured by the method of the F-scan
plantar pressure system.
Wireless in-foot pressure measurement system (F-Scan, Novel Inc., US), which consists of 100 capacitive sensors, was used to test the plantar pressure by wearing the nine different orthopedic insoles (3 arch heights, 3 materials), as shown in Figure 1(a).
As shown in Figure 3, the plantar pressure distribution in FE model was similar with F-Scan data and the peak plantar pressure was 140.0 KPa and 142 KPa in FE model and F-Scan measurement, respectively.
Therefore, the primary aim of this study is to present the experimental plantar force and pressure data during various activities using a high-resolution (Tekscan HR F-scan system) pressure mat.
The sensor mat used is the Tekscan HR F-scan system, with 8448 sensels on a surface area of 0.572 m by 0.457 m (0.261 [m.sup.2]).
Baropodometry is a quite easy-to-use method to evaluate changes in plantar pressure during gait using an inshoe system containing pressure sensors (F-Scan system, Tekscan Inc; South Boston, Massachusetts).
Data were collected using the F-Scan in-shoe system.
Boston, MA -- Tekscan[R], Inc., a leading provider of technologies for analyzing foot function, gait, and balance, announced the release of new, improved software for their F-Scan in-shoe analysis system.
The F-Scan system gives them that kind of objective documentation.
The test-retest reliability of the measurement instrument (F-scan
sensors) during stair negotiation was determined by testing five subjects with unilateral TTA (Table 2) twice over a 48 to 72 h period, and SEW was determined for each session.
The pressure measurement system selected to monitor and record the interface pressure between the residual limb and prosthetic socket was a validated 6-channel F-Scan
system (Tekscan), and the system software used was version 5.24 with synchronized video capture.
