The NUHS Whole Health Center-Lombard received a new Metascan™ system for use in clinical research, clinical education and patient care. The equipment, valued at $2500, is a donation from Footmaxx.
The unique pressure mat and interpretive software provides a dynamic scan of gait and foot function that can be used by clinicians in multiple ways. Not only can the scan be used to create individually prescribed custom Footmaxx orthotics, it can also be used for a wide variety of diagnostic applications in clinical settings.
“We are grateful to companies like Footmaxx who support the education of future chiropractic physicians. Gifts like the Metascan™expose our students to emerging diagnostic technologies for the profession,” says President Joseph Stiefel.
Below is a video giving a brief demonstration on how Metascan captures a dynamic scan of the foot in motion:
