The London Podiatry Centre uses in-shoe pressure sensors to assess and measure force, pressure and timing. The system allows us to determine whether conditions of the foot relate to abnormalities in force and pressure. It also allows us to look at gait efficiency in a more general sense by optimising factors such as the centre of pressure, the force time relationship and other "kinetic" variables.
This an example of kinetic (pressure and force) data obtained from a patient. With the right graphs the forces should be equally balanced between the left and right (red and green) side. This patient is markedly asymmetrical and requires treatment to correct this.
