Active Sports Therapy uses the Footmax Orthotic System for prescription orthotics.
Here’s how the FootmaxxTM System works:
You walk across a computerized force plate that’s connected to a computer. The mat has 960 electronic sensor points built into it.
|As you walk, the force plate captures the motion and timing of your foot throughout the gait cycle. This data is analyzed by the computer to produce instant 2d and 3D graphic images of the pressures under your feet that you can see on the screen. The same information is then sent to FootmaxxTM via modem where sophisticated diagnostic software specifies the prescription for your custom orthotics and can generate a comprehensive gait and pressure analysis.|
There is a secret to making orthotics that give you exactly the right correction and accurate measurements of the way you walk. In the past, doctors relied on plaster of foam casts to get a static impression of the feet. However, these cast record only the shape of the foot at rest not bearing any weight.
The FootmaxxTM System helps your practitioner analyze your gait and prescribe the proper orthotics to help your feet function better. FootmaxxTM orthotics are thin and light weight. They fit easily and discreetly into your existing footwear. You can wear your most stylish shoes, and still get the proper support and correction from FootmaxxTM Orthotics. FootmaxxTM orthotics provide superior control and correction for foot and gait abnormalities. Custom made especially for you, FootmaxxTMorthotics will correct and improve the way your feet strike the ground, enhancing your natural movement and helping your feet move more efficiently.
