Foot Pressure Testing for Enhanced Ergonomics in Product Design

02-Jun-2017

Understanding the importance of implementing ergonomics in product design, CRE8 has continuously worked on different approaches to enhance all the possible factors that may improve user experience in various scenarios, especially in the medical field.

Together with the Asia University of Taiwan, CRE8 DESIGN initiated a detailed testing of foot pressure behavior under different stress conditions, i.e. normal walking surfaces, treadmill surfaces and concaved surfaces, to best determine how to improve for long term use of the Virtuix Omni VR platform.

CRE8 helped with the design process and engineering of the product, making it user-friendly and safe. The test results support our design strategy to develop a product that lowers the foot pressure, enabling a healthier and more comfortable mode for people to enjoy VR entertainment.
