Abstract
The present paper reports on the development of an autonomous, lightweight, and robust insole pressure sensor array system. The system measures plantar pressure on the go and channels the information to a mobile device but also stores it onboard, enabling post-measurement data analysis. The collected data can be used to analyze posture and gait but also to measure the performance of an athlete. The application is not limited to sports as abnormal plantar pressure distribution is of interest for several fields of medicine, among them the early detection of diabetic foot ulceration. The materials, methods, and approaches considered and tested during the development are discussed. The target system is aimed at high signal reproducibility for periodic measurements, high response frequency and long-term stability.
