    Abstract

    A new method has been designed, developed and pioneered in Dundee, UK for the construction of thin, small, flexible, reliable, repeatable and cheap transducers to measure the vertical pressure under the plantar surface of the foot. The transducers are constructed from a piezoelectric film which consists of a mixture of polyvinylidene fluoride and polymethylmethacrylate resin (90% to 10% by weight). The size of the transducers is scalable from 4 cm down to 25 µm.
