The Metascan™ also measures these five key parameters:
Left and Right Heel Lift
Left and Right Forefoot Contact
Left and Right Maximum Forefoot Pressure
Where does maximum pressure appear?
Is the center of pressure line straight or curved?
An optional dynamic gait and pressure analysis report can be ordered as well. The Footmaxx™ system provides a dynamic, weight-bearing biomechanical patient assessment and enables digital patient data to be transmitted via modem to the Footmaxx laboratory where it is analyzed by the proprietary diagnostic software, Metascan™. Metascan™ generates a Dynamic Gait and Pressure Analysis Report containing 2D and 3D color images of the patient’s footstep, data on kinetic pressure patterns during the stance phase of gait, and a conclusion describing any biomechanical abnormality detected as compared to normal gait values. If an aberrant biomechanical pattern is detected, Metascan™ also specifies the prescription for custom foot orthotics.
The eight key foot landmarks (lateral heel, medial heel, five metatarsal heads and the hallux) are accurately isolated and tracked throughout the stance phase of gait. The gait and pressure analysis report is useful as a permanent chart record and can be submitted to insurance and managed care companies to facilitate pre-determination requirements. Metascan™ now makes a scientific, accurate, biomechanical patient assessment affordable using the Footmaxx™ System in your office.

*Orthotic insoles are usually covered under your extended health insurance. In most cases the chiropractor can prescribe and/or order the orthotics directly, in some instances however, some insurances require a medical doctor prescription before the orthotics can be ordered by the chiropractor. Please contact your insurance provider for more information.
