A 3-D Foot Print Device was developed to measure the plantar foot pressures for normal and diabetic patients with neurotrophic ulcers. The results show that patients with peripheral neuropathy develop very high forefoot pressures as compared to normal segment of the populations. Bubble technology and new memory biomaterials insoles were used to reduce these forefoot pressures combined with providing new custom made shoes.
