Abstract

The purpose of this study is to help the athlete prevent injuries and improve performance by deVising the individual insoles according to the plantar pressure measuring data. To stipulate the different movements in the different regions of the foot, the Footscan software compares the pressures during certain periods in the foot roll off. The dynamic region system detects the different parts of the foot (hallux, other toes, the different metatarsals, the midfoot, the medial and lateral heel). For each area the pressures, the ground contact and the contact time will be calculated. When all these data are collected, the Footscan software will interpret the data and give a proposal for a dynamic three dimension (030) correction ,insol'e and the modules which have to be used.
