Foot Pathologies Classification From Pressure Distribution Over The Foot Plant

Abstract

Nowadays, approximately 35% of the population suffers problems in the feet. In many cases, some foot pathologies are treated by means of especial insoles. These insoles require customisation for the success of their treatment. However, there is a great lack of knowledge in this sector. As an initial step it is essential to develop a new objective tool capable to classify among the different foot pathologies. In this paper we present a system to classify different foot pathologies which uses the Nearest Neighbor (NN) classification rule based on weighted metrics and prototypes selection. The system uses as input data the pressure distribution over the foot plant.
