The emed® systems are the family of novel platform measurement systems.
All emed® platforms operate with calibrated capacitive
sensors. For easy data transfer the platforms connect
directly to the computer via the USB interface.
The emed®-m and the emed®-x systems are used in a high
sensor resolution mode with a sensor resolution of
4 sensors/cmÇ and, depending on the emed® version, a
frame rate from 50 to 100 Hz. The emed®-x alternatively
operates in a high-speed mode with a sensor resolution of
1 sensor/cmÇ and a frame rate up to 400 Hz.
With a user-de ned reduced sensor area, the platforms
can be scanned with frequencies greater than 800 Hz.
The emed®-x supplies frame-by-frame input and output
signals for synchronization with motion analysis, digital
video and EMG. All emed® platforms bear the CE mark for
calibrated medical device Class 1 with a calibrated pressure
range from 10 kPa to 1.25 MPa.
novel developed speci c scienti c software for pedographic
data collection and analysis for use in combination with all emed® systems.
The pedar® system is an accurate and reliable pressure
distribution measuring system for monitoring local loads
between the foot and the shoe. The pedar® o ers the
ultimate versatility with its multiple standard features and
operating modes. The pedar® can be tethered to a PC via
a ber optic/USB cable. It can also function in a mobile
capacity with its built-in BluetoothTM technology or, as yet
another alternative, the pedar® system’s ˇ ash memory
storage allows data to be collected in any setting and
then downloaded to the computer at a later time. The
pedar® can also be used for long-term load monitoring.
For that application novel has developed the pedoport®
software which fully integrates with the pedar® system
