Podiatrists who attended the event had the opportunity to see - for the first time outside the consortium - all project results in operation under real use conditions, such as the 4D Foot Scanner Version B, the Plantar Pressure Predictor, the Insole Designer, or the Interactive Catalogue connected to the Virtual Mirror.

It is worth mentioning the participation of Dr. Juan Francisco Merino, Head of the Endocrinology and Nutrition Department of La Fe Hospital (Valencia) as key speaker with a presentation about the effects of diabetes and obesity on the patient's feet

Furthermore, some attendees also participated in the validation of project results, providing their opinion as foot healthcare experts on the various features of the developments presented. They provided very interesting comments for further improvement of the results and better alignment with the real market needs.
