The Zebris FDM pressure distribution measurement platforms provide valuable information on gait disorders and the roll-off behaviour of the feet, assisting with the diagnosis.


Thanks to the combination of intutive software and robust hardware the tried and tested zebris FDM measuring system allows fo an easy and fast stance gait and roll-off analysis.

Using capacitive pressure sensors, it captures the static and dynamic pressure distribution under the feet while standing, walking or running. The capacitive sensor technology ensures increased durability while the sophisticated calibration of every single sensor guarantees an exact measuring result.

Measurement and evaluation is via the intuitive zebris FDM Software Suite. It evaluates the measuring data of the ground reaction forces and synchronises with the video. The measurement procedure may be observed in the viewer and if necessary be played back in slow motion.

As a supplement to gait analysis, analysis of the static force distribution allows the display of static posture. The measurement platform can be rotated in three dimensions. 

The measuring platform is integrated into a low-profile walking surface allowing it to be used for all patient types, including those with walking aids.

The intuitive software automatically calculates the standard gait parameters. Proprietary algorithms make it easy to capture multiple steps through the integration of multiple passes across the measurement surface, resulting in precise and accurate measurements.

Simi Aktisys is the quickest and easiest way of conducting dynamic movement analyses; processed data can be obtained with just three clicks of the mouse! The software uses coloured LED markers to calculate measurements from videos or directly from the live-stream! Years of work on high-performance algorithm developments have led to the production of Simi Aktisys, so that it is able to recognise and identify markers in real-time on video recordings. This milestone in the advancement of video analysis technique was achieved by Simi in collaboration with research partners from all over the world.

Simi Aktisys is a time saving, efficient, dynamic and cost effective movement analysis system. With the fully automatic tracking of coloured LED markers, Simi Aktisys reduces analysis time, and delivers a better quality of data for your work. The software employs the most up-to-date technology available and excels in its user friendly qualities. Small markers are located automatically on the camera image, captured during the recording and the resulting data is put at your disposal. As a result, rapid analyses using reliable data, as well as biofeedback solutions, are possible.
