Hi everyone,

Our laboratory is trying to decide which foot pressure system to buy: the
Novel Pedar system or the F-Scan system. I realize that there are
publications out there which suggest that the Novel is much more accurate
than F-Scan, and I also realize that there has been discussion on the
BIOMCH-L about this topic in the past. I understand that recently F-Scan
has claimed to solve its accuracy problems. I would like to know what
the current thinking is on which system is better in terms of accuracy,
repeatability, etc. Is it still widely believed that the Novel system is
the more superior product? Thank you.
