  • -Quick technology description (1 line)Device embedded footwear insole that is able to measure user’s weight and running/walking gait-Reason for this technology, a combination of the following-What it should help with?-Aid correction of user pronating-Help podiatrists monitor their patients' progress during their rehabilitation period when using the insoles-Why it is important?-if incorrect foot postures are not acted upon, it will lead to severe implications (like knee pain, shin splints, achilles tendinitis, posterior tibial tendinitis, Piriformis syndrome, and plantar fasciitis)-it is an interactive -What impact should this technology have? -Encouraging users to correct their foot postures -improve efficiency and effectiveness of the treatment based on the up-to-date information of patient’s progress
  • - if incorrect foot posture is to continue into a bad habit, it will cause problems like knee pain, shin splints, achilles tendinitis, posterior tibial tendinitis, Piriformis syndrome, and plantar fasciitisWhat impact should this technology have? Encourage users to correct foot postures Improve efficiency of treatmentImprove effectiveness of the treatment
  • Description of targeted user groupPrimary: PatientsSecondary: Podiatristsand whyPatients to enjoy treatment even when they are not in clinicsRectifies almost instantaneously to avoid repercussionsPodiatrists only need this to track progressEnable more precisely prescribed treatmentTIP: use findings from A1 and A2 research
  • Description of targeted activity/task/goal (combination possible) whyGoal: To help patients recover from pronationActivity: To insert device into the footwearTask: To allow the device to rectify foot posturesSupport why with research insights-patients’ tendency to skip treatments interrupts doctor’s treatments because its “troublesome” (or lazinesss)-doctors needs to know if the patient is following rehab instructions correctly and as stipulatedResearch insights1) Interview with regular runner: shows that it is important to correct foot postures to prevent implications and discomfort2)Availability of devices which can help in market:anti-pronation devices which are incorporated as arch supports only and does not automatically adjust foot postures for direct treatment.
  • Description of targeted context and why-targeted context: Physical Environment-physically:LightweightCompatible with many kinds of footwearAble to withstand moisture (sweat) and weightSocial-Doctors are unaware of patient’s state if patients do not turn up for appointmentsCultural-social culture in singapore = busy , people do not like to visit doctors if they feel that they are alright-frequent appointments for corrective procedures are being viewed as troublesome-not enough time for everything, difficult to schedule appointments-view medical bills and problems as expensiveYou may want to illustrate this with a picture or two.You may also choose to describe PACT together perhaps as a Picture Scenario. In which case you need not strictly follow this slide order, just stay within the max number of slides
  • SocialNeed to wear correct footwear to operate deviceNeed to insert device into footwear
  • The sensors work by detecting the rolling motion of the arch that is commonly associated with foot pronation, upon which it will then adjust its extent of arch support to conform to the user’s foot.
  • Your chance to emphasize why this solution really should get good grades Easy usageRectifies situation immediatelyExistence of archived records for easy reference in the case where doctors are changed, the problem comes backDevice will be frequently used thus effective for treatmentLocation of problem areas easily and accurately identifiedProgress precisely tracked to enable effective follow upsComfortEnhances walking/running experienceLow maintenance

  • Limitations of device:-The device runs on kinetic energy of users, however in rare circumstances, the kinetic energy of the user may not activate the device’s sensors-This device is not compatible for use with all kinds of footwear, only designated ones.To what extent is the proposed solution useful after the problem no longer exists? - It allows continual tracking of the patient’s condition after recovery-The functional corrective function of the insoles will ensure that the patients’ foot postures do not deviate from the correctIssue of cost:- an additional cost for enhanced recovery

      Pro-Help Insole
    • 2. Pronation
    • 3. Overview
      Artificially intelligent insole inserted into the shoes to allow automated correction and updates on foot postures.
      • Automatic correction of pronation
    • Reasons
      Why is it important?
      Incorrect foot postures lead to severe implications:
      Shin splints
      Knee pain
      Achilles Tendonitis (Heels)
      Intended Results
      Encourage users to correct foot postures
      Improve efficiency of treatment
      Improve effectiveness of the treatment
    • 4. Problem statement: People
      Primary TA: Patients
      Justifications
      • Self Remedy
      • 5. Patients to enjoy treatment even when they are not in clinics
      • 6. Rectifies almost instantaneously to avoid repercussions
    • Problem statement: Activities
      Goal: To help patients recover from pronation
      Activity: To insert device into the footwear and walk/run*
      Task: To allow the device to rectify foot postures
      Research insights
      • Interview with regular runners
      • 7. Availability of devices which can help in market
    • Problem statement: Context
      Physical
      • Able to be used while running/walking
      • 8. Compatible with most running footwear
      • 9. Able to withstand moisture (sweat) and weight
    • Problem statement: Context
      • Physiological
      • 10. Enables good foot posture and thus reduces discomfort/pain
      Social
      • Device can be used alone/in groups
