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.

All payments through Step Force 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.
