We are currently looking at buying a foot pressure measurement plate to add
to our amory of gait analysis equipment. I have looked at what is available
and lined up some demonstrations but I am interested in labs personnal
experiance with the systems.

We wil be using it for clinical gait analysis and ideally would like to
gather the data at the same time as we are gathering forceplate data,
kinematic and EMG (we have a Coda mpx30, Coda EMG and 2 Kistler
forceplates). Our subjects are mostly children with cerebral palsy. We aim
to use the data to predict and prevent foot disorders, to increase our
understanding between foot problems and their causal / compemsatory
mechanisms throughout the lower limb and to assess children pre and post
management for surgery, orthoses, physio etc.

Thank you,
