Freezing and non-freezing cold injury occurs predominantly in the extremities, with the feet being at greatest risk. Inappropriate footwear is the main cause for the aetiology of cold injury of the feet. Ensuring that footwear meets minimal biophysical standards is therefore essential in preventing cold injury. The aim of the present project was to design and develop a sweating thermal foot manikin with a gait simulator. The Thermal Foot Manikin System comprises a sweating thermal foot manikin… CONTINUE READING
