Take care of your walking health and balance
through baropodometry!

What is baropodometry

 

Baropodometry is a test that analyzes in detail the pressures exerted by the soles in a static position and while walking, in order to identify possible problems. These can be remedied by training, kinetotherapy or with the help of plantar supports (orthoses), which facilitate the proper distribution of body weight.

For baropodometric analysis, at the Superfit Center we use the revolutionary BTS P-Walk equipment. This device helps to identify and treat pathologies related to gait and balance disorders, performing functional analysis of a gait cycle through static and dynamic measurements of plantar pressures.

With the help of BTS P – Walk, the antero-posterior and lateral oscillations can be evaluated for the whole body and, separately, for each limb. Also at this level, proprioceptive, oculomotor and vestibular interferences are evaluated, in order to observe the static balance.

BTS P – Walk is very useful for performance athletes and has applications in orthopedics, neurology, diabetic foot, Parkinson’s disease. It also helps prevent the risk of falls in elderly patients.

What are the advantages of baropodometry
