Abstract

In this work, we present the development of an in-shoe device to monitor plantar pressure distribution for gait analysis. The device consists in a matrix of 64 sensitive elements, integrated with in-shoe electronics and battery which provide an high-frequency data acquisition, wireless transmission and an average autonomy of 7 hours in continuous working mode. The device is presented along with its experimental characterization and a preliminary validation on a healthy subject.
