Welcome to the world of asymmetry! We humans are all asymmetrical. Our natural asymmetry varies from person to person and depends on individual physiological make-up as well as our habits and our lifestyle choices. For many people, these slight discrepancies are naturally compensated for and the asymmetry goes unnoticed. For others, however, the differences are more pronounced and may result in a trauma to the overall postural system.
Take for example, someone who, due to working conditions, uses repeated and prolonged â€œbadâ€ posture. The trauma to their overall postural system may begin to manifest itself in back pain. To treat the origin of the pain, the correct source of the postural imbalance must be identified.
KINEOD uses infrared acquisition technology to provide a complete, 3D postural analysis for this very purpose: assistingexperts in diagnosing postural imbalances. KINEOD is an ideal solution for experts treating pathologies of the spine or lower limbs, ooking to improve impaired balance and posture or perhaps wishing to confirm a diagnosis with a thorough follow-up and assessment of the implemented therapeutic strategies.
KINEOD is also an excellent communication tool that will help the expert not only communicate the pathologies to the patient but to illustrate the results of the therapies put in place.
The KINEOD station can quickly be set up on its tripod and simply connects to your computer via an USB 2.0 port. The phases of preparation, acquisition and reconstruction are optimized through an ergonomic user interface and intuitive management of the patient database.
To set-up a patient, the process includes: Identifying skin markers with a felt pen at the specified anatomic landmarks and then tracing a dotted line on the patientâ€™s exposed back that follows the spinal column.
The patient is positioned correctly through a virtual viewfinder. The patient holds the posture for the short duration of the acquisition: (33 ms).
Sagittal analysis offer choices of sagittal plane selection (profile view) to obtain corresponding cyphosis (back roundness) and lordosis (lower back) parameters.
Allows practitioners to view several indicators: The angles between the pairs of markers and a reference corresponding to imbalances. The lateral deviations from the C7 vertebra in relation to the inter-gluteal fold, knees and malleolus over PSIS.
The vertical de BarrÃ© indicates the deviation of C7 point and gluteal fold from a vertical drawn from the middle of both ankles. On the lower limbs, the front axle of the knee and the mechanical axis between the knee and ankle are indicated in degrees.
Check the pressure points on your soles in static conditions using a tangential light podoscope
We will scan your feet in static and/or dynamic conditions depending on your activity levels and check for the weight pressure distribution on your feet
The Factors involved are:-
2. Type of Foot-wear.
4. Activity of Patient
5. Biomechanical Axis
We heat the insole material to make it malleable and then we thermoform it in your foot impression so that it cools down to take the correct contour
Correction elements are added at specific areas under the foot (eg. Arch support, metatarsal pad, etc.) based on the targeted objective so that your foot gets the required support and comfort
The insole is then put through a grinding process that offloads weight from areas receiving excessive weight pressure or from areas of wounds, ulcers, corns, calluses and we give the insole a finish that your customized hand-made pair of orthotics looks like a factory cut piece with a smooth finish.
The orthoses are then fitted into your shoes or sandals the way regular insoles are.
