In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar, presenter Antonio Robustelli (Sports Performance Scientist & Technologist with OmniAthlete Performance Concept) explores how to optimize sport rehabilitation outcomes using plantar pressure mapping technology.
The rehabilitation of an athlete is a complex process requiring a team approach where different professionals work together to bring the athlete to a safe and healthy return to competition. The use of technology and tools to assist practitioners can improve the decision-making process for a return to sport.
Plantar pressure mapping represents a unique technology that delves into the biomechanics of the lower extremities, where injuries can either be directly caused by poor foot function or indirectly affect the dynamics of the foot strike.
