@contentandwell The pressure sensitive treadmill is used to test the pressure as your feet go down. At the same time a video of your walking gait is being recorded and can be analyzed by various metrics in the program. My PT used it yesterday and was fairly happy with the way I was walking, except that he wants me to focus more on getting the heal down as my surgery leg goes forward, and rolling through all the motions. You can see sometimes that people with TKR or other knee issues will shuffle, or put their foot down flat without going through the usual rocking motion. He wants me to avoid that and I also am anxious to do so, as some people I know with TKR do have that shuffle.

@saeternes this sounds like a wonderful machine. With the feedback it provides, a person can more easily correct what they may be doing wrong.
