Title
(EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL PLANTAR IMAGING APPARATUS AND MEMBRANE ASSEMBLY FOR USE IN THE SAME
(FR) APPAREIL D'IMAGERIE PLANTAIRE TRIDIMENSIONNELLE, ET ENSEMBLE MEMBRANE À UTILISER DANS CELUI-CI
Abstract
(EN) A membrane assembly for use with a three-dimensional imager to obtain a topographical plantar image of a foot is provided. The assembly includes a support structure having a front end and a rear end elevated relative to the front end, and a flexible membrane suspended from the support structure and configured to receive and support an entire plantar surface of the foot. The membrane defines and encloses an upper portion of an inflatable chamber, and includes a forefoot- and a rearfoot-receiving region respectively adjacent to the front and the rear end of the support structure. The rearfoot-receiving region is under less tension than the forefoot-receiving region. The imager is positionable under the membrane in order to acquire the plantar image when the foot is disposed on the membrane. An apparatus including a membrane assembly and a three-dimensional imager, and a method for imaging a foot are also provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble membrane destiné à être utilisé avec un imageur tridimensionnel pour obtenir une image plantaire topographique d'un pied. L'ensemble comprend une structure de support comprenant une extrémité avant et une extrémité arrière surélevée par rapport à l'extrémité avant, et une membrane souple suspendue à la structure de support et conçue pour recevoir et supporter la totalité d'une surface plantaire du pied. La membrane délimite et entoure une partie supérieure d'une chambre gonflable, et comprend une région de réception d'avant-pied et d'arrière-pied, respectivement adjacente à l'extrémité avant et l'extrémité arrière de la structure de support. La région de réception d'arrière-pied est sous une tension moins grande que celle de la région de réception d'avant-pied. L'imageur peut être positionné sous la membrane, de façon à acquérir l'image plantaire lorsque le pied est disposé sur la membrane. L'invention concerne un appareil comprenant un ensemble membrane et un imageur tridimensionnel, et un procédé d'imagerie d'un pied.
