Pachyonychia Congenita (PC) Shoe


2012-13 Academic Year

I took the unusual step of proposing my own senior design project for my BS degree. The idea we had was to design a device to relieve pressure from the soles of patients with Pachyonychia Congenita (PC), a rare skin condition. Thanks to the support of PC Project and BYU, our team was able to identify a commercially available brace that we adapted for PC.
