Those who have concrete goals and want to achieve them need, first of all, the right tests. Thanks to biotechnology, we can find out where we need to intervene, what we need to improve and what would be the risks we face if we do not perform specialized tests. The revolutionary BTS P – Walk equipment is the complete solution for evaluating the distribution of plantar pressures, static and dynamic. This device helps to identify and treat pathologies related to gait and balance disorders. BTS P – Walk performs the functional analysis of a walking cycle through static and dynamic measurements of plantar pressures.
Plantar pressure analysis
BTS P – Walk allows the evaluation of the way in which the plantar pressures and forces are distributed, both in static phase and in dynamic phase, during walking. This device helps to identify plantar overloads, rotations and postural asymmetries.
With the help of high-performance software, the result can be framed in one of the 6 basic types of foot deformity.
BTS P – Walk highlights the projection of the center of mass for each step performed and allows the evaluation of contact surfaces, average and maximum pressures, as well as forces.
Static equilibrium analysis (stabilometry)
With the help of the BTS P-Walk device, the antero-posterior and lateral oscillations are evaluated for the whole body and, separately, for each limb. Also at this level, proprioceptive, oculomotor and vestibular interferences are evaluated.
Analysis of spatio-temporal parameters (if we have an area of more than 1.5 m)
The BTS P – Walk posture plate performs an objective and complex analysis of the motor capabilities of the lower train and the treatment results.

This device 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.
The equipment includes normative data that are automatically compared with the values obtained after an examination, thus allowing the immediate visualization of the results and, therefore, the establishment of a treatment plan.
