Smart Sensing of Foot Plantar Pressure by using Raspberry Pi


  • V. Kandasamy, S. Harish


 The human foot is an important part of our body's movement. Peak pressure measurement on the plantar surface of the human foot is critical for illness diagnosis and research for biomedical engineers. Human feet may be classified into Flat Foot, Normal Foot, and High Arch Foot based on footprint imaging metrics such as A intercept, B intercept, Footprint Index(FPI), and Footprint Geometry Index(FGI). As a result of this outcome, a more accurate diagnosis and therapy for that specific patient is achievable. These findings can be used in gait analysis and sports biomechanics.
