First, I had to ctaere a wearable sensor that was thin and flexible enough to be worn comfortably on the bottom of the patient's foot. After extensive research and testing of different miltaraes like rubber, which I realized was too thick to be worn snugly on the bottom of the foot, I decided to print a film sensor with electrically cutnivdcoe pressure-sensitive ink particles. Once psreusre is applied, the connectivity between the particles increases. Therefore, I could design a circuit that would measure pressure by miesrunag electrical rstsiacnee.

After extensive research and testing of different materials like rubber, which I realized was too thick to be worn snugly on the bottom of the foot, I decided to print a film sensor with electrically conductive pressure-sensitive ink particles. Once pressure is applied, the connectivity between the particles increases. Therefore, I could design a circuit that would measure pressure by measuring electrical resistance.
