Operation Principles of the COMEX Foot Scanner! The insoles are usually created based on static foot imprints (plaster models, mock-ups). These imprints cannot possibly capture the foot’s movement during walking, or the stresses exercised at each point of our foot.
Our COMEX Foot Scanner technology offers a dynamic assessment, diagnosis, prevention and treatment method, through lower extremity data analysis. The analysis is based on data from thousand sensors, connected to a computer providing absolutely accurate information aiming at the creation of individual, custom-made orthotic insoles. The Foot scan provides information regarding high stress regions of the Foot, as well as the distribution and timings of the stresses, the pressure points, the body centre of mass, and a full gait analysis in the various stance and push-off phases, and more.
ADVANTAGES OF THE COMEX FOOT SCANNER SYSTEM
To COMEX Foot Scanner System is the only one incorporating cutting-edge technology to provide the patient with an accurate gait analysis, allowing the creation of custom-made orthotic insoles. The use of state-of-the-art technology, combined with the broad experience of our Podiatrists is the main element for the effective and appropriate manufacture of orthotic insoles, provided that the problem is not due to the shape of the foot but at the function of the individual parts of the foot during walking.
WHY THE COMEX SYSTEM IS BETTER
The COMEX System offers the only means by which to assess a patient's gait and fabricate a custom orthotic device using computerized, dynamic, weight-bearing data instead of a static, non-weight bearing mold of the shape of the foot. This data along with the experience of our Podiatrists is key to making truly efficacious orthotics because it's not the shape of the foot that causes the problem, it's how the foot functions while bearing weight.
