    Ok thanks for Toeslayer and Simon for a reminder

    The trouble and strife is a P&O as some of you may remember.

    Anyways the Swedish company in the Link contacted her company , basically they are connected to a Uni and are making smart textiles.

    My wife place of work is looking at or will using these smart textiles to capture 3d images of stumps etc when making sockets .

    At the moment they use casting and some are using different image capture techniques and CAD .

    But we the wife and I were discussing the smart textiles , I could see the benefit for casting.

    From what I can understand the textile will have X number of sensors which will feed information back to the computer - so if there is enough " feel " in the material and the material is elastic enough a true positive image could be captured with very little noise, Images could be captured NWB, Semi WB, WB similar to PP casting and may make manipulations of the foot during casting easier to achieve ?

    anyway food for thought ? I liked the idea
