More than 8,000 participants were registered for the 4 day scientific conference and exhibition, which included the latest technology in the field of medical science and daily clinical assessment of patients.  Many visiting orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, as well as physical therapists used the opportunity to experience an 8-minute pedographic examination, including a clinical report, at the novel booth.

The conference also brought increased interest in the commercially available intraoperative pedography (IP) from novel.  Implementing a standardized load procedure the surgeon has the ability with IP  to measure  the load beneath the foot and ultimately modify the surgical treatment if required.  The clinical use of this technique was presented during the scientific program by Professor Dr. Med Martinus Richter (Coburg, Germany). Dr Richter demonstrated an impressive result in patient satisfaction documented by a 24 month follow up study (Richter, M., Zech, S., 2009) “Is Intraoperative Pedography Helpful in Clinical Use – Preliminary Results of 100 Cases from a Consecutive, Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Clinical Follow-up Study. Foot & Ankle Surgery: 15(4): 198-204).
