Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Question Re: telemetric GRFz measuring insoles


Does anyone know of a company that has implemented GRFz measuring technology
into an insole and can relay the data telemetrically?

Thanks to all who responded to this posting. The responses were pretty
consistent in that everyone suggested I check out the Pedar system from Novel
(www.novel.de). However, one chap did suggest the footscan measurement
system.

I should point out that these systems are mobile, but not telemetric in that
they store the data on a memory card of sorts. However the insole is still
wired to a computer located on a hip pack. I guess I am searching out
something that doesn't exist...as I have yet to find a device that is as user
friendly as a CSA/MTI accelerometer in terms of multi-day continuous data
collection (but measures GRFz).

Not having a background in biomechanics or engineering I guess I figured that
somebody would have made an insole that telemetrically sent GRFz data to the
hip computer (memory stick).

Thanks again for the responses,
