Prewalker / Kids' clothing

Prewalker

Newborn baby's feet are made mostly from cartilage and fat. Cartilage will start ossifying to become bones during the grown-up process. Undesirable shoe and Inappropriate walk style can cause malalignment of joints, restrict normal growth of the feet, and foot joints limit natural movement.
In this project, have been tried to use the Piezochromic pigments in socks to give parents this opportunity to diagnose excessive pressure to their child's feet due to unfit shoes or inappropriate walking such as walking on the toe, and will treat it with the help of a paediatrician.
