## The work involved (i) development of a portable dynamic pressure measurement system based on piezo-electric transducers to measure the pressure distribution under the foot-sole inside shoes while walking; (ii) appropriate modification of shoe stiffness using FRP composite inserts designed on the basis of the measured pressure data for patients with insensitive feet.

 

@@ As a part of the experimental group the involvement was mainly in the development of an experimental facility for measurement of motion variables, forces and strains in the linkages of switchgear mechanics; making these measurements and their interpretation.
