emed®: Pressure distribution under the foot.

 

Request a quote

emed® pedography platforms 
are accurate electronic systems for recording and evaluating pressure distribution under the foot in static and dynamic conditions. The platforms provide accurate, reliable information for the analysis of foot function and diagnosis of foot pathologies. Foot deformities and malfunction can be detected during analysis of the barefoot pressure data.

The emed® systems belong to the family of novel pedography measurement platforms. All scientific emed® platforms operate with calibrated capacitive sensors.

Pedography is a functional diagnostic tool. The pedography analysis can be done within 8 minutes.

The emed® platforms are compliant with the European Regulations on Medical Devices. This is extremely important for its use in clinical settings. A simple CE mark without a notified body is not sufficient as it can stand only for low distortion but not for safety and reliability.

 

The emed® measuring software
controls the emed® platform and collects and displays the plantar pressure data of the foot. Different levels of emed measuring software are available.

Features: 

  • are portable platform measuring systems
  • contain calibrated capacitive sensors
  • get connected via USB to laptop or desktop computers
  • require current Windows operating system
  • accurately measure foot pressure and body weight in static and dynamic mode as well as body balance
  • start recording automatically when the subject´s foot contacts the platform
  • data acquisition can be controlled by novel database
  • link with novel foot report software
  • can be synchronized with EMG and 3D gait analysis systems

emed® platforms
are available in different dimensions, resolutions, frequencies and synchronization options. Please find below the technical specifications of the various emed® pedography platforms.
