Abstract:

The capabilities of the I-SCAN (TekScan) system for pressure measurements were tested in in vivo and in vitro condition using hosiery articles at a pressure of 18-21mmHg, as declared by the manufacturers. For two types of knee-length socks with the same structure and slight difference in composition (polyamide/elastomer 78/22% and 64/36%) the pressure was measured on the ankle and calf in four positions (1-front, 2-inner side, 3-back, 4-outer side). The highest pressure values were found for the 1-front position and the lowest for the 2-inner side position. It was shown that there is a correlation between the in vivo and in vitro tests. The I-SCAN method allows to take measurements in various place and to create maps of the pressure distribution.
