Add a new tool to your practice

And educate your patients about posture and gait!

Using the plantar pressure sensor, both static (balance, posture) and dynamic (gait) pressure mappings of the foot are captured. This represents the core of the pedics assessment.

The data conducted reveals conditions beyond the scope of the foot - that’s why it’s especially valuable in the initial examination of new patients.

Screen patients for foot deformities

Foot deformities and pathological gait patterns are a prevalent phenomenon.
This is how our assessment reveals some of the most common foot conditions.

A pressure heatmap high-arch example

High arch

Pes cavus

This is a mild case of pes cavus. The longitudinal arch is so high that there is no ground contact in the mid foot area between the heel and the ball of the foot. The heel also exhibits an area of increased pressure during initial contact (heel strike) due to the inhibited flexion of the arch. The normal gait line allows the differential diagnosis with pes valgus.

Flat foot

Pes planus

The pressure measurement shows a wide contact area under the longitudinal arch, especially to the medial side. The lowered os naviculare leads to increased pressure in the respective area.

A pressure heatmap pes-valgus example

Pes valgus

The excessive eversion (medial tilt) of the calcaneus is confirmed by a gait line that is shifted to the medial side and does not run through the center of the ball of the foot. The uneven pressure distribution in the forefoot with a bias to the first ray supports this finding.

Pes transversoplanus

The collapsed transversal arch of the splayfoot (pes transversoplanus) is revealed by the increased pressure in the center of the ball of the foot and by a gait line indicating that the second and third ray bear increased force during push off.

Taking a look beyond the foot

The feet are the foundation of the body. Any problem here will affect the entire body. Various conditions of the foot, especially deformities and malalignments, regularly lead to pain in different parts of the body. The pedics assessment helps to identify and quantify such issues.

For health professionals

Our service is designed for practitioners in the field of chiropractic care and physical therapy.

The pedics assessment creates an engaging learning experience for patients and facilitates a better understanding of alignment and the functional structures of the body. The knowledge gained from the assessment also supports practitioners in elaborating better treatment plans.

An engaging experience

A conclusive report is automatically generated after the assessment. It constitutes a valuable visual aid for patient education and can be made available to patients as a print-out or via email.

Additionally, customized patient education materials are provided in the report according to the indications selected during the assessment.

The pedics platform

A completely integrated solution for most efficient workflows.

Our web application, the pedics platform, was designed to create a seamless process for the user:

  • Keep track of previous assessments
  • Take care of orthotic configurations
  • Manage and track your orders
  • Maintain your terminals and subscriptions
  • Keep track of invoices and payments.
