Using Evidence-Based Pressure Mapping Technology to Improve Patient Outcomes

Event Date:

Friday June 10, 2022 • 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Approved for 3.0 CEUs

Data obtained from pressure mapping and measurement technologies can provide key clinical insights to improve patient outcomes. From plantar pressure measurement for diabetic foot disease, to post-ACL reconstructive monitoring, to the most complex orthotics cases, learn how performing assessments of foot pressure, gait and balance helps clinicians get their patients on the road to recovery. Join us as we learn from three highly-experienced and knowledgeable researchers, clinicians and educators in the field of gait analysis as they share results from actual case studies, innovative protocols, and cutting-edge research.

Plantar Pressure Analysis: From Research to Frontline Clinical Practice

June 10, 2022, 03:00 PM – 04:00 PM EDT(-04:00)
Nachiappan (Nachi) Chocklingam
Whilst highlighting various techniques used in plantar pressure measurement, Professor Chocklingam will provide an overview of available procedures to analyse data and support effective clinical management. He will use examples from his research to showcase how research-informed practice has changed the way clinicians currently manage patients who have complications resulting from diabetic foot disease. He will focus on the use of plantar pressure measurement in his cutting-edge research on footwear materials and explain how this has the potential to lead to the development of clinical management to prevent diabetic foot ulcers.

Guiding Clinicians through the Process of Assessing Complex Orthotic Cases

June 10, 2022, 04:00 PM – 05:00 PM EDT(-04:00)
Patrick Rainville, Chiropodist
This session will describe how pressure measurement technologies can assist providers with difficult orthotic cases, resulting in these complex cases being common and often left unresolved. This class of patients typically see many professionals from wide-ranging backgrounds in the medical industry as they attempt to resolve their issues. In effect, patients are left broke, symptomatic, and hopeless. Providers who face complex cases expect results, using experience and peer review journals to figure out the best management plans for these clients. Providers who cannot achieve results become frustrated and discouraged and spend office resources to help these patients. Tekscan gait analysis technology can assist providers with assessing, fitting, and re-assessment of an orthotic case. The session will describe three complex cases using pressure measurement technology and how patients and providers can use a data-driven management plan to manage expectations.

ACL Reconstruction: How Instrumentation and Data-Monitoring Enhances Clinical Decisions

June 10, 2022, 05:00 PM – 06:00 PM EDT(-04:00)
Amelia Bruce Leicht with Joe Hart, PhD
Precise instrumented musculoskeletal evaluations are essential to support healthcare decisions, especially for patients recovering from ACL reconstruction with the goal of returning to high level sports. In this session, Dr. Joe Hart and Amelia Leicht will provide an overview of an approach to monitoring rehabilitation progress and return-to-play testing following ACL reconstruction using instrumented assessments of balance and loading distribution. Their talk will introduce a specific protocol called the LEAP program (Lower Extremity Assessment Protocol) used to assess functional outcomes following ACLR.
