Sensor pad placement
To obtain accurate results and maintain comfort we recommend that the patient wears shoes with an insole that can be easily removed such as runners / sneakers.
1. Choose an nCounters’ insole that fits easily into the patient’s shoe. If there is already an insole in the patient’s shoe it is a good idea to remove it.
ENSURE SENSOR PADS ARE CORRECTLY POSITIONED ON THE INSOLE, UNDER THE PATIENT’S FOOT PRIOR TO INSERTING INTO THE PATIENT’S RUNNER.
2. Place the insole under patient foot with attached VelcroTM exposed. The sensor pads can be moved along the insoles to ensure the correct position. Securely attach the sensor pads as described below:
- For forefoot sensor pad place ‘X‘ under ball of foot. and then attach the pad via the VelcroTM to the insole. Push pad up against patients forefoot to just check they too feel it is in correct position.
- For heel sensor pad place ‘X‘ directly under the patient’s heel and then attach the pad via the VelcroTM to the insole. Push pad up against patients heel to just check they too feel it is in correct position.
While the insole is on patient’s foot’ place foot and insole on the floor and ask the patient to transfer weight from heel to ball of foot in a rocking motion for approximately 10 seconds. This is to condition the sensors.
