(Central Leather Research Institute)
The Central Leather Research Institute, in India, was founded on the 24th of April 1948. In 1947, the export basket of India included mostly raw hides and skins, a very important resource for the economic development of India.We took the opportunity and found the CLRI (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research), innovating the leather industry with the latest technologies.CLRI, today, is a central hub in Indian leather sector with direct roles in education, research, training, testing, designing, forecasting, planning, social empowerment and leading in science and technology relating to leather.
Becoming more and more important for us to achieve a customized production of shoes, orthotics and prosthetics, so we decided to give ourselves a BTS GAITLAB: a laboratory of motion analysis, to design and develop custom therapeutic shoes and footwear that meet the specific anatomical-functional requirements of the different stakeholders.
In the design of shoes, orthotics and prosthetics, it is important to consider the design and the materials, because they have an impact on the activity of the muscles of the lower limbs and foot progression during the gate. The result of the use of gait and movement analysis systems on the subject, help us to improve our products, helping to sustain in a scientific manner, the Indian footwear industry by improving their design and manufacture.
The CLRI mission is to study the normal conditions of foot as well as its abnormalities or debilitation due to injury, deformity or disease. The establishment of new facility enables us to run qualitative and quantitative investigation based on bio-mechanic principals and therefore to develop our products more accura”tely.
