pedar®: Dynamic pressure distribution inside the footwear.
The pedar system is an accurate and reliable pressure distribution measuring system for monitoring local loads between the foot and the shoe. The pedar offers the ultimate versatility with its multiple standard features and operating modes.The pedar transmits the pressure data via Bluetooth to the computer, where it is displayed instantly. . It can also be tethered to a PC via a fiber optic/USB cable. It can also function in a mobile capacity with its built-in Bluetooth technology. And, as yet another alternative, the pedar has a SD card storage allowing data to be collected anywhere and later downloaded to the computer.
All of these features make the pedar system extremely mobile and flexible to meet virtually all testing needs such as walking, running, climbing stairs, carrying loads, playing soccer, or even riding a bicycle. The results are therefore more relevant to real-life.
The pedar system connects to highly conforming, elastic sensor insoles that cover the entire plantar surface of the foot, or to sensor pads for the dorsal, medial or lateral areas of the foot. The pedar sensors use capacitive technology – known to provide the best accuracy for pressure measurement on the human body. The pedar system allows multiple synchronisation options to be used i.e. with video systems for gait analysis.
