My name is Vahideh Moradi and I am a Master student in Orthotics and Prosthetics at Iran University of Medical Sciences. I am working on comparing custom-made AFOs and prefabricated AFOs. According to my searches the pressure distribution might be a suitable “outcome measure” for this comparison and it has been employed as a comparison method for other orthoses such as Foot Orthoses. So I am wondering, to your opinion, if pressure distribution can serve as a outcome measure to determine the differences between these two methods of manufacturing. On the other hand, which instrument would you suggest for measuring pressure distribution my feeling is that FSR will be a good method and I appreciate your idea regarding advantages and disadvantages of this method?

Your help is much appreciated
