An indentation apparatus for evaluating discomfort and pain thresholds in conjunction with mechanical properties of foot tissue in vivo
Shuping Xiong, PhD, et al.
This article describes an apparatus for measuring the discomfort and pain thresholds and the mechanical properties of human tissues. The apparatus is automatic, flexible and cost-effective, and test results indicate that it is accurate and reliable. Applications of the apparatus include detecting foot tissue abnormalities, developing orthopedic footwear and accessories, and providing information for building finite element models.
