Clinical Gait Assessment Using Plantar Pressure Analysis (Part 3):
How to Analyze Data to Understand What We Are Seeing
In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar, ‘How to Analyze Data to Understand What We Are Seeing’, Paul Graham (Musculoskeletal Podiatrist & Clinical Educator in Plantar Pressure Analysis) explores the current protocol to record plantar pressure data to ensure effective analysis.
The recording and analysis of plantar pressure data requires a thorough understanding and review to comprehend what is being presented. If the recording is not captured in such a way to provide accurate and consistent data, then the analysis can become compromised.
Using the foundational analysis tools within XSENSOR’s software, we will review recorded data, going beyond the pressure mapping, and looking at the timing and trajectory of body weight, as well as symmetry and tissue loading. We conclude this segment by comparing data captured during the initial examination to data captured after treatment.
Finally, we will explore actual case studies reviewing the various analysis features and what they can tell us, providing information on components of foot conditions so that we may develop treatment strategies to address any dysfunction and reduce stress from any injured tissues.
