The Project

I. Defining the concept of Pedorthic Information Modeling – PIM       [Work in progress/WIP]

II. Creating PIM (Pedorthic Information Modeling) software tools

  • II.1 – WIP: Parametric design of a foot orthosis

  • II.2 – WIP: Parametric design of an orthopedic/therapeutic shoe/footwear last
  • II.3 – WIP: Parametric design of shoe/footwear soles
  • II.4 – WIP: Parametric design of 3D shoe/footwear uppers
  • II.5 – WIP: Parametric design of 2D shoe/footwear patterns
    • II.5.1 -WIP: Shoe/footwear last flattening

    • II.5.2 -WIP: Design of 2D patterns
  • II.6 – WIP: Rendering
  • II.7 – WIP: Introducing simplified biomechanical foot models

III.  WIP From virtual to the real life – manufacturing medical shoes based on PIM

IV. Creating the first CAD-CAM Lab for foot orthoses from Romania, in a partnership with Centrul Medical de Podiatrie
