Janet Dufek and Daniel Lidstone (both Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences) along with Mohamed Trabia and Jessica DeBerardinis (both Mechanical Engineering) authored “Electronic Measurement of Plantar Contact Area During Walking Using an Adaptive Thresholding Method for Medilogic Pressure-measuring Insoles.” The study sought to develop an adaptive-threshold method using pressure-measuring insoles that can improve the accuracy of the measurement of plantar tissue contact area during walking, and experimentally assess the accuracy and generalizability of this method. The article appears the current issue of The Foot. Lidstone and DeBerardinis are doctoral students.
