a digitally changing world, where the boundaries between traditional commerce and ecommerce are merging, the need for cutting edge technologies and innovations is essential. The shoes we wear are very important for the health of our feet. In particular, the choice of shoes and the materials has a significant influence on the protection of feet according to multiple experimental studies. Use of appropriate footwear among diabetics and those with foot problems has been well documented to play a vital role in the prevention and treatment of established foot diseases. The incidence and prevalence rates of heel pain problems in the world are increasing and foot complications are rising parallel. This is related to the lifestyle of the people which is changing including diet. There is however lack of adequate knowledge about the role of footwear in the management of foot related problems among heel pain patients in the world. This study is the first of its kind to be done with an aim to develop a framework that would help to identify appropriate footwear material and design for people suffering with heel pain. The studies are experimental studies with repeated measures data. A total of 25 individual participants? heel pain patients were involved. To achieve this, data were collected through questionnaire and interview surveys, shoe upper style, materials, foot analysis and foot measurements included foot pressure measurements through Classic MatScan by Tekscan software and hardware. However, several systems for measuring plantar pressure in the foot are currently available. Among those are the E-med, Pedobarographs, F-Scan/Mat-Scan*, and Piezoelectric insoles. For this study, the Mat-Scan was utilized to perform pressure analysis of the foot. For evaluation, a study was conducted collecting barefoot Mat-Scan data of 25 individual participants? heel pain patients while standing and walking positions to be assessed in order to provide them with the most appropriate footwear design for their condition to reduce the heel pain. Pressure sensors within the mat can detect increased foot pressure and whether this pressure is evenly distributed, or concentrated in certain anatomical areas of the foot. Contact pressure on the plantar aspect of the foot generates forces in the subsurface tissue, and causes it to deform. The ?breakdown? develops when the contact pressure load leads to a permanent distortion of the tissue and to the formation of localized tissue damage.
