Healthy feet make a difference. Daily Podiatry is branch of medicine devoted to the study of diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. The growing interest in sports analysis and new materials is helping technology get into podiatry at a very fast pace. A new focus is set on motion analysis: the experts in the field have realised that analysing movement is a very relevant factor for pathology diagnosis, injury prevention and treatment.

STT has put a great effort over the past years to help the professionals (medical specialists who diagnose and treat conditions affecting the foot, ankle, and structures of the leg) incorporate the latest innovative products to their day-to-day work.

Gait and joint analysis based on optical tracking

Clinical 3DMA is your system if you are looking for a powerful, full-body or lower-body analysis, with application to sports (running on a treadmill, cycling…) and are planning to use a permanent location.

Alternavitely, would you like to use optical tracking in different locations? Then maybe EDDO is your product. EDDO delivers the same amount of data as CLIMA (except it is meant for one-side tracking) while being a portable device. Check out its features.

Wearable sensors: on-field tracking

The advent of wearable technology has also boosted lower-body analysis. iSen can be used to track a flexible number of joints. No cameras, no permanent location. Totally wireless.

​Foot scanning

Analysing the shape and texture of the foot, or at least the foot sole, is usually very relevant in order to make a comprehensive assessment of someone’s lower body. Not to mention its importance for the insole orthotics design. For more information, please visit our 3D scanning sections for shoes design and insoles manufacturing.
