> manufacturer would produce such kind of sensors (system)? I think the
> sensor should be waterproof, thin enough to put under the sole/palm and
> the signal could be logged into a data storage unit during training. To
> the best of my knowledge, the F-scan and Pedar systems were not waterproof
> although the sensors are thin. Other load cell manufacturers did not
> produce this kind of sensor.
