Baropodometric analysis is a tool to assess the dysfunctions of the feet, it may be valuable in terms of
postural assessment. Plantar pressure measurement is hardly considered a powerful or meaningful diagnostic tool in clinics, medical data of plantar pressure is analyzed by professionals. These data inform the specialist on the possible pathology and define through the analysis a strategy that can correct such pathology. Devices to measurement the plantar pressure present differences in sensor technology, matrix spatial resolution, pressure range, sampling rate, calibration procedures, raw data pre-processing, this lead to significant differences in the overall accuracy of pressure measurement. Utilizing the image processing, PIPLAB was developed, this device provides a method of objectively measuring plantar pressure.
Device validity was shown through comparison with commercial devices, as such, PIPLAB has utility as a
measurement tool for pressure plantar.
