Webinar | Plantar Pressure Mapping & Complementary Technologies: XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles & Surface Electromyography (Part 1)

In XSENSOR Technology's first webinar in the all-new 'Plantar Pressure Mapping & Complementary Technologies' series, we explore using the Intelligent Insoles and Surface Electromyography (sEMG) to assess and profile athletes.

Plantar pressure mapping with sensor-based insoles is emerging as one of the most exciting technologies for evaluating movement biomechanics and assessing injury risk in sports. In some circumstances, plantar pressure mapping can be combined with complementary technologies to enhance the analysis's outcome.

Surface electromyography, also known as sEMG, is a non-invasive method for measuring the electrical activity of muscles. When paired with plantar pressure mapping, it can provide a rich dataset of information related to human performance and movement.

This webinar highlights how utilizing plantar pressure mapping, such as XSENSOR's innovative Intelligent Insoles, in conjunction with sEMG can significantly aid sports biomechanists, sports medicine practitioners, strength and conditioning coaches, and rehabilitation specialists in identifying muscle function and biomechanics efficiency, thereby creating a more accurate and comprehensive neuromuscular profile.

Key Takeaways from This Webinar:

  1. Learn – The rationale for pairing plantar pressure mapping and sEMG and how this can improve the evaluation of movement mechanics and injury risk assessment.
  2. Understand – The role of plantar pressure mapping, when used in tandem with sEMG, in augmenting the neuromuscular profile, providing invaluable human performance data.
  3. Experience – Practically using plantar pressure mapping and sEMG hardware and software to measure and analyze pressure and muscle activity data.
