The Plantar Foot Pressure Analysis System (PFPAS) is a shoe insole system that is used to quantify and diagnose the risk of plantar fasciitis, a musculoskeletal disorder characterized by the inflammation of the plantar fascia. The system senses the distribution of pressure during quiet standing as well as walking, the peak force at heel strike, the amount and speed of pronation as well as the angle of dorsiflexion.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
