Abstract
Nowadays the measurement of the contact area of the foot has become an objective way of classifying feet and to describe the form of the longitudinal arch of the foot. In this work, the implementation of a digital podoscope that enables remote sensing for evaluation of the foot is described. The podogram includes an outline of the plantar pressure, and the contour of the arch. This method of evaluation is relatively simple and inexpensive while maintaining precision. The recognition system compares the image of the actual foot with that of a reference image. Information from the comparison can be sent by internet to obtain a remote diagnosis from an expert.
