While standing, we used baropodomerty to measure pressure on foot area. Human foot cause force reaction while making contact with the base. We also used plantogram and a special foam to measure foot size pressure and force as well as pressure and force that is appearing between the foot and the surface. In this work, we compared pressure between normal and deformed men and female foot against their body weight. With this analysis, we found that deformed foot makes bigger pressure on heel spur. In this research, we had 10 male and 10 female candidates. We were measuring weight, height and foot area as well as pressure and force that foot produce while walking. At the end, we concluded that the candidates with bigger body weight, made more pressure and force on their feet. We are hoping that this research will contribute in shoe factory to decrease weight on feet.
