Abstract:
    Balanced pressure distribution can prevent many feet related diseases.FeetMap is a low-cost,realtime plantar pressure measuring platform having wide applications in sports,gait analysis and healthcare
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Foot ulcer is major and the most common complication accounting for more hospitalizations than all the other diabetic complications combined,and is responsible for 50% to 75% of non-traumatic amputations.FeetMap will help patients to let them identify the risk for foot ulceration.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The proposed device is a smart weighing scale capable of showing body weight distribution on the feet.It is attractive for B2C health conscious people as well as B2b Neuropathy Clinics,Rehabilitation and Sports coaching centers.31 rehabilitation,39 sports centers nationwide can be potential users
How will the solution works
    The key component of FeeMapplatform is its 2-D force sensitive sensor array that senses and quantifies the pressure and is integrated with multiplexers ensuring power,size and energy optimization.To eliminate ghosting errors, shift registers are also included in the circuit. A microprocessor receives sensors output and transmits data after calibration to a PC where a mapping software stores and displays pressure distribution as a heat map with color coded intensities.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are few international competitors like Emed system by Novel(Germany, Rs.4.2M) and Kitronyx (Rs. 55,221).however they are very costly and lack local technical support.Unlike these,the proposed solution is expected to be Rs.35,000 and being locally designed can provide after sale maintenance.
