In order to provide custom orthotics, our board-certified team of podiatrists utilizes FOOTMAXX Metascan technology. A pressure mat performs biomechanical gait assessments and sends acquired information to a computer screen. Since a person’s walk can reveal a lot about their foot and ankle health, they simply have to walk across the mat and let the technology take care of the rest.
When a patient steps on the mat, a series of scans can detect pressure distribution, leg length discrepancies, alignment deviations, movement patterns and body symmetry. The mat also analyzes how a patient’s gait differs between walking and running and how the left foot responds compared to the right.
As a result, a comprehensive, accurate read is obtained. The podiatrist and the patient will be able to learn if any abnormalities are present and how extensive an injury is. From there, the FOOTMAXX Metascan technology can translate the data into a prescription, so a custom mold can be developed. Patients will be able to walk away with braces, supports, inserts and footwear fitted and personalized to their unique needs, whether it’s for gait correction or pain relief.
