Tekscan Plantar Pressure System

This portable system allows the measurement of in-shoe foot pressure during a range of activities such as walking, running and jumping.

Make/model Tekscan F-Scan VersaTek.
Details In-shoe Pressure Measurement System.
Facility Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Facility (MSKBRF)
School School of Engineering

The F-Scan sensors (insoles) are positioned within the participants shoe. Each sensor is made up of 960 individual pressure sensing locations, allowing measurement of in-shoe foot pressure. The participant wears a wireless unit at their waist and aquisition cuff units attached above each ankle which link to the insole sensors. F-Scan sensors are disposable with a finite lifespan. The scale of the research activity would determine the number of sensors required.

Contact the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Facility (MSKBRF) on or telephone +44 (0)29 2087 6436.

From £228.63 per hour. Please enquire for details.

The system has dedicated technical support for its use and set up. Individual requirements can be discussed and training offered.
