A wearable device which tackles prevention of overuse of the achilles tendon.  CORDALT measures the factors that cause wear to develop, and distributes some of the forces that run through the tendon away from the tendon.

It collects data on the primary causes of overuse, and displays it in a data visualised application.   It enables active tracking of the development of the injury and the health of the achilles.  The associated app will enable the user to be more informed about the health of their achilles, with information and education accessed via a main dashboard.
