Biometrix Medica - simulation

By: Biometrix Medica  09-12-2011

The Diers Formetric Simulation Platform is an adjunct to the Formetric family of 3D spinal imaging products.  It is a user adjustable platform for each foot that enables elevation, inversion/eversion, and plantarflexion/dorsiflexion of the patients feet. Any combination or these movements are possible. Inversion and eversion adjustments are done along the long axis of the foot and therefore are independent from plantarflexion and dorsiflexion components of movement.  These measurements are recorded in the results of each Formetric image. 

 The Simulation Platform gives the practitioner the ability to analyze the effect of foot corrections on the spine and substantiate prescriptions.  The Simulation Platform gives the ability to find the optimum correction thru incremental changes of 1 mm in any of the movements.  Optimized prescriptions yield optimized results.

Biometrix Medica - pedoscan

Practioner evaluation of the results enables a more comprehensive picture of any anomalies that can be addressed in exercise, orthotic prescription, or other modality. In the dynamic testing the patient will walk across force plate from either direction to record both the left and right foot patterns. The Pedoscan is a thin forceplate that records both static and dynamic pressures on the plantar surface of both feet.


Biometrix Medica - formetric

Fast, contactless, radiation-free -- the Formetric uses a fast hi-defi nition optical measurement of the surface of the back of your patient to produce graphical, clinical and analytical information on the spine, the pelvis and posture. The high accuracy of this method used on scoliosis patients was clinically confi rmed by Drerup, et al. and compared with customary thorax radiographs by Hackenberg, et al.” — Drerup, B., et al.
