The goal of this investigation is to calibrate and validate custom pressure sensing insoles against a gold standard pressure measuring device (A Novel pedobarograph). From this calibration, a sampling frequency will be determined to test the efficacy of visual feedback in changing pressure profiles at the foot in a neuropathic population. This investigation will determine if the custom insole accurately measures pressure changes in the foot during standing and walking gait.
