This study aims to analyze the plantar footprints based on biomechanical parameters obtained through plantar pressure measurements and to present an easy to use methodology for establishing the foot type in order to further suggest orthopaedic devices, such as customized soles and insoles. Using the RSScan pressure plate and the Footscan software, fine observations both on foot and on repartition of foot pressures are made. By analyzing the maximum pressures obtained in this case study, the highest values were registered under 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones, suggesting that the investigated subject has different arrangements of high pressures compared with the ones reported by other similar studies. The gait time has been analysed, resulting in a normal distribution of this parameter on each area of the foot. By comparing the results, the left foot has been demonstrated to be high arched.
