The software provides an immediate overview of the measurement data including dynamic playback, display of several parameters and maximum pressure pictures (MPPs) for all collected files. In addition to the standard configuration for data collection, user-defined configurations are possible. User-defined configurations optimize the system for different applications including: stand-alone dynamic assessment of foot function, synchronized dynamic assessment of gait with video, automatic calculation of foot and shoe size with the footpat® software, or dynamic pressure assessment of An audible tone prompts the patient to begin walking. The recording starts automatically and can be stopped Three diagrams next to the pressure picture display manually or after having recorded the necessary number of time curves for maximum pressure, vertical force and steps.
