The campaign intends to enable the purchase of diagnostic equipment where the plantar supports can be viewed through a digital platform. With this diagnosis, it is possible to detect poor footrests on the floor.

The campaign intends to enable the purchase of diagnostic equipment where the plantar supports can be viewed through a digital platform. With this diagnosis, it is possible to detect poor footrests on the floor.

Sooner or later a good part of the population ends up having back problems. A large part of these problems arise due to a poor footing in contact with the floor. There is still, in many cases, a differential in the length of the lower limbs. All of this, over the years, can cause low back pain, scoliosis and joint wear.

To combat this problem, a postural assessment is necessary, starting at the foot, passing through the knee and hip, ending at the cervical spine.

In Portugal there are not many equipments of this kind, for that I need your contribution, also be part of this project, because I believe that it will not only be the realization of a dream of mine long conceived, but also a big step in the use of technology to help people diagnosed with foot and spine problems, which affect the quality of life of the Portuguese so much!

About the author

Hello, my name is David Oliveira, I am an Osteopath, registered with the Central Administration of the Health System (ACSS), my taste for treating people started a few years ago in the area of Sports massage, going through physical rehabilitation where I did some internships. preparation in Physiotherapy Clinics and in the Portuguese Association of disabled people, in Largo do Rato in Lisbon, having accompanied students of Sports Massage from the Institute of Traditional Medicine.

I went looking for skills and took a leap to Osteopathy in Sport and Podoposturology, which aims to study the Biomechanics of athletes and the general population, making after an exhaustive diagnosis, insoles tailored to each person.

I recently created a Startup, located in a business incubator (StartLab), in Agualva-Cacém, Municipality of Sintra, which aims to develop customized orthopedic insole solutions based on the study of each person's footprint, however technological evolution has taken me rethinking the evaluation methods and as we all know, the costs are high, so I am counting on you to be able to achieve this objective.

Note: In case of doubts about the credibility of this project, I leave accessible for viewing, in the documents area, the draft agreement signed and sent to the social entrepreneurs agency and to the Sintra City Council.

Budget and due dates

To reach the goal, € 3000 is required.

If this amount is reached or exceeded within the fundraising period, the funds will be delivered to the promoter. Otherwise, they will be returned to supporters.
