Advanced Footcare adds state-of-the-art biomechanics analysis system to modernize patient lower extremity function
and mechanics assessment.
AVENTURA, FL, May 3, 2017 – Advanced Footcare, a Miami-based full service podiatry practice, today announced that it has added the Noraxon myoMETRICS™ Portable Lab to its suite of podiatry medicine and performance management tools, providing a highly-advanced biomechanics testing and diagnostics platform for foot function and gait analysis. Of particular interest to elite and recreational athletes, Advanced Footcare’s podiatry experts are now able to do comprehensive testing work off-site and in the field to gain the most accurate assessment of its patients’ natural performance.
The Noraxon myoMETRICS Portable Lab incorporates full kinetics, kinematics and EMG testing equipment, optimized for mobility and high-fidelity data capture, with real-time biofeedback and reporting through Noraxon’s latest version 10 of its myoRESEARCH®3 (MR3.10) biomechanics research software platform. MR3.10 features a fully integrated set of biomechanics data assessment modules, which automatically synchronize data recording and processing. Advanced Footcare experts have the flexibility to work with a single technology, such as EMG, or to set up a fully equipped biomechanics suite incorporating video, 3D kinematics, force, pressure or any other third-party device that streams an analog signal. With more than 20 built-in reports and the ability to customize each of them, Advanced Footcare’s physicians and biomechanics experts have the power to tailor the assessment for each customer and interpret detailed baseline metrics reports, leading to evidence-based therapy that utilizes various types of bracing, such as functional foot orthotics or OTC devices.
“The single greatest challenge for biomechanics experts today is collecting data from different input sources and remote locations and trying to synchronize the variations on the back end,” said Brent Perkins, President, Noraxon USA. “The myoMETRICS Portable Lab simultaneously captures all data types and synchronizes the full suite seamlessly in real time, streamlining data capture, analysis and reporting for the researcher, clinician or sports scientist.”
The Noraxon hardware/software platform enables Advanced Footcare to support patients beyond podiatry, including lower extremity issues such as pre- and post-surgical evaluation, biomechanical issues related to foot, ankle, leg and back discomfort, and provide expert consultation for other practitioners in need.
“The area of sports science has become an important part of what we can do to help increase athletic performance, address biomechanical abnormalities and decrease risk of future injury,” states Dr. Charles A. Mutschler, DPM., Medical Director for Advanced Footcare. “We are pleased to be able to offer this extraordinary level of data, analysis and counsel with the myoMETRICS Portable Lab,” he added.
