Protect Your Feet with Orthotics
Footmaxx ® is an innovative system of customized orthotics for individuals that suffer from foot related problems. This could include, but is not limited to, pain or discomfort in feet, ankles, knees, hips or lower back. The physical therapists at Pleasantview Physiotherapy Clinic in Edmonton have been trained in the use and application of the Footmaxx® system. The clinic also proudly stocks and sells SUPERfeet®, helping to stabilize the foot whilst providing support and comfort.
How Does It Work?
The client walks across a computerized pressure mat that’s connected to a computer. The mat has 960 electronic sensor points built in to it. As they walk, the force plate captures the motion and timing of their foot throughout the gait cycle.
This data is analyzed by the computer to produce instant 2D or 3D graphic images of the pressures under their feet that can be seen on the screen. The same information is sent to Footmaxx® via modem where sophisticated diagnostic software specifies the prescription for their custom orthotics and can generate a comprehensive gait and pressure analysis report.
