Dural - Biomechanical Zebris Machine
Our fantastic Zebris Machine for patient biomechanical analysis is available at our Dural podiatry practice. Our diagnostic treadmill has more than 5000 sensors within the belt. These are connected to a computer which displays the distribution of force and pressure for each footstep as a moving colour coded contour diagram.
We all have individual ways of moving and the diagnostic equipment we have at Hills Podiatry Centre allows us to analyse the data supplied. This gives you the best outcome and treatment options. Our Zebris FDM-T is a highly sensitive Force Distribution Treadmill with movement pressure sensors which allow us to explain to you what is going on with your feet.
We take our time with you during the consultation to answer any questions you have and we will send a report to your doctor with your results.
