Plantar pressure distribution is one of the most important parameters in understanding the biomechanics of limbs and gait analysis. According to WHO Globally, an estimated 462 million individuals are affected by type 2 diabetes, corresponding to 6.28% of the world's population. More than 95% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. This device focuses on the measurement of the pressure on the foot due to body weight. Foot pressure distribution is not just subjected to age, but pathological and other disorders play a vital role in affecting the normal pressure distribution. Many techniques have been developed for quantitative gait analysis but, comparatively these systematic process fails because it only measures static or dynamic pressure for a very short duration of time and space. In this proposed electronic device, an electronic insole system is designed in a shoe using a force sensing resistor (FSR) sensor that can monitor pressure wirelessly and then transfer data into the CPU. This device provides Vocational rehabilitation, to people with physical hindrances in this case diabetes.
