This stage, I watched some official recovery videos and analyzed the foot gestures of the injured professional athletes ( from the human foot gesture pespective), which aims to prove what foot stretching gestures that I have obtained form Peter Liu, therefore engage the final foot gestures applied in my project.
According to Figure 3.0 & 3.1, the measurements data were taken a injured ordinary user,by sitting with his leg stationary and perpendicular to the ground at as close to a 90-degree angle as he could. According to the analysis of these videos, all the feet and heel injuries need to use these basic stretching behaviors, and they pointed to the four different directions, left, right, front and back, allowing me to think of the players’ movement on the court.
As a consequence, these behaviors have been prooved through the interview, the documents from the specialist, and the case study, therefore they can be used in my final concept.
