Step Force Training has been developed by a treating clinician for clinicians.

My aim is to empower practitioners in foot and lower limb dysfunction in their every day practice, by providing practical training on how to harness the many benefits of clinical plantar pressure analysis.

The training is specifically for clinical use, rather than the use of plantar pressure for research. My hope is that I can help you make sense of what you’re seeing. – Paul Graham

Many practitioners are keen to use plantar pressure analysis for the objective data it provides.

High definition calibrated equipment provides you with information that will transform your clinical practice.  If you can understand the data and make sense of what you’re seeing, you will understand your patient’s concerns.

When you understand how the foot and leg are working in real-time, you will understand why areas are being overloaded and how you can address the underlying cause, rather than just redistribute the high-pressure areas, potentially leaving the dysfunction to continue.

This understanding of the objective data provides targeted treatment strategies, which you can test and measure in real-time to see the outcome. Plantar pressure analysis gives you great confidence in your treatment plan and can significantly improve the results for your patient and your practice.

Are payments for the course online secure?

All payments through Step Force Training are processed through Paypal, the #1 payment gateway on the internet.
PayPal offers End-to-end encryption keeping your data and PayPal transactions secure. Here are some of the ways they do that.

TLS Connection

When you register or log into PayPal from your computer or mobile device, we make sure you’re connecting with TLS 1.0 or higher and only make HTTPS connections (HSTS). Strong TLS configurations are the current industry standard for trusted communication channels and allow your information to transmit across the internet in a secure manner. Only allowing HTTPS connections helps to reduce your susceptibility to some passive and active attacks.

Key Pinning

When you access PayPal via the IOS and Android apps we implement key pinning. Key pinning ensures that when the TLS connection is established by your mobile device it connects only to a true PayPal server. This prevents situations where you launch the app, expecting to connect to PayPal and a PayPal imposter intercepts your connection request and pretends to be us.

Data Protection

PayPal comply with stringent requirements for data protection while in transit and at rest such as PCI-DSS. In addition to industry and regulatory encryption requirements, PayPal’s Information Security Policies and Controls are reviewed by independent third parties to the following industry standards and guidelines: American Institute of Certified Public Accountants SSAE16 SOC1, AT101 SOC2, Sarbanes-Oxley.

Replay of May 2021 Webinar course:

This course includes the plantar pressure mapping of some common conditions and what in-consultation interventions you can use to quickly test and predict the outcome of your treatment using plantar pressure analysis.

Replay of August 2020 Webinar Course

Designing orthotics is all about knowing what you want the orthotics to do. Whether you use an orthotic lab or have in-house milling, you need to understand the design process to get the best outcome for each patient.

Step Force Student Testimonies

I stumbled across this training via free access to a historical webinar during lockdown and boy am I glad I did. As a result I have done the Essentials course and the plantar pressure webinar course and will be subscribing to more. The training is delivered by someone with 20 years experience using this type of technology and is of a high standard and is unique in plantar pressure training. Plantar pressure systems have a steep learning curve and these courses will save years of frustration to anyone adopting them in Clinical practice. Quite simply, for anyone using this technology they are a “No-brainer”.

Steve WellsEpsom, United Kingdom

The different courses about “Plantar Pressure Analysis & Diagnosis” were very interesting. I’ve learned a lot about how we can ‘read’ the different foot pressure data and how we can use the data for further research. I’ve also learned how important it is to use and understand plantar pressure analysis rather than only using video imaging.

Paul delivers a comprehensive look at this new modality (pressure analysis) that is relevant and necessary to the progress and development as experts in the field of gait patterns and pathology

I got 10 times more out of this event than expected. Practical, next day implementable knowledge and a new motivation for pressure system analysis

Tyson Franklin JnrSydney, Australia

Great course that makes pressure mapping make more sense. I will be putting what I learnt into practice on Monday!
