Summer Special 2017

novel is celebrating 30 years of pedar system.
In Summer 1987 novel for the first time offered the pedar sensor insoles connected to an electronic device for pressure distribution measurements inside shoes.
Peter Cavanagh, Benno Nigg and the Nike research lab were among the first users.
Today the pedar system is the world standard for quality in-shoe measurement of plantar forces. Nearly all big sport shoe companies around the world work with the pedar system.

The story of success we would like to celebrate together with you.
Therefore, we grant a special discount on all incoming orders for emed and pedar systems until July 15th, 2017!

New Publication about Postural Control and Gait with the help of emed platform

New scientific article just published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation: “Prospective Evaluation of Postural Control and Gait in Pediatric Patients with Cancer After a 4-Week Inpatient Rehabilitation Program” from Carsten Müller, PhD, Dieter Rosenbaum, PhD, and Konstantin A. Krauth, MD of the Institute of Sport and Exercise Sciences, Work Unit Performance and Training in Sports, University of Münster, Münster, Germany (CM); Institute of Experimental Musculoskeletal Medicine, Movement Analysis Laboratory, University Hospital of Münster, Münster, Germany, (CM, DR); and Klinik Bad Oexen, Kinderhaus, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany (KAK).

Postural control was assessed examining the velocity of the center of pressure and single-leg stance time on our emed pressure distribution measurement platform.
Walk ratio, a measure of neuromotor control, was used to evaluate intervention effects on gait.
