The day has come when people can make their own shoes at home, to adhere to the contours and biomechanics of the feet, with the help of 3D printing. German engineer Markus has been making 3D printed shoes for his wife to properly fit and support her feet. After eight hours of printing, Markus was able to create a white sandal with colorful blue straps with the help of his wife’s most comfortable pair of high heels.
Proper foot care is important for biomechanics of the feet, which incorporate the parts that manage the movement of your feet. If you have any concerns, see Dr. Jordan Rachlin of New York. Our doctor will treat your growing feet in addition to other podiatric-related needs.
A History of Biomechanics
- Biomechanics dates back to the BC era in Egypt where evidence of professional foot care has been recorded.
- In 1974 biomechanics gained a higher profile from the studies of Merton Root, who claimed that by changing or controlling the forces between the ankle and the foot, corrections or conditions could be implemented to gain strength and coordination to the area.
Modern technology improvements are based on past theories and therapeutic processes providing a better understanding of podiatry concepts for biomechanics. Computers provide accurate determinations about the forces, moments and patterns of the foot and lower legs with the most important information captured.
Advances in materials and more awareness of biomechanics have developed enhanced corrective methods, offering further options for foot-related injuries. Understanding foot biomechanics can help improve and eliminate pain, stopping further stress to the foot.
