Manometers, Plantar Foot Pressure

Definition : Manometers designed to measure the pressure exerted by one or both feet while standing and/or walking. These devices typically consist of an electronic manometer with a dedicated mat that includes multiple sensors to detect the pressure between the foot and the mat at many different points. The manometers may be dedicated instruments or part of physiologic (e.g., gait) analyzers that permit the detailed assessment of the pressure in different areas of the foot using computerized algorithms and/or graphic analysis methods. Plantar foot pressure manometers are intended to provide plantar foot pressure profiles; they are used for different purposes including the identification of discrepancies between pressure exerted by each foot, the identification of potential areas of ulceration, and in the assessment of balance and foot muscle strength.
