Iranian Scientists design smart shoes for diabetes patients

Iranian Scientists design smart shoes for diabetes patients

In an ever-evolving world where technology is slowly creeping from our desktops and walls to our wrists and heads, scientists in Iran have developed shoes that use multiple sensors to monitor the amount of energy spent and also the speed with which the patient walks.

“Given the fact that each person has their own pattern for walking and the pattern plays a key role in our health, we began to design new smart shoes equipped with some sensors to explore the patterns of walking,” Mr. Mohammad Mojarradi was quoted saying in a Farsi report by Mehr News Agency.

According to Mojarradi even people who suffer from mere imbalance while walking could use these shoes to monitor their walking pattern. The shoes are equipped with software that monitors multiple parameters of the owner’s feet.  

He highlighted that the shoes are designed to measure the physical features of the feet to precisely map the walking pattern. “The data are transferred to the physicians through a wireless system so that they can make some prescription for improving the patients’ walking patterns,” he added.

Another member of the project added that this is the first footwear targeted at the diabetes patients in Iran. The project is sponsored by the Physical Education Research Centre at Tarbiat Modares University.
