The goal of the CAD WALK project is to develop a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system for foot pathologies within a two year time span. The system will take in and examine pressure measurements collected from the bottom (plantar) surface of a patient's foot as they walk. Using these measurements, it becomes the job of the CAD WALK system to identify and highlight which parts of the patient's foot apply unusual amounts of pressure on the ground, and also to identify when during the footstep those unusual pressure measurements occur. This information can then passed on to a clinician who can take it into consideration when coming up with a diagnosis.
