Dear readers,

I am interested about an integrated pressure/force sensor with a mP interface.
Characteristics like rigid, robust, low power consumption, small dimensions are
also needed as it must be implanted in a foot-insole.

I have already done a market-search about it. The biggest portion of
similar sensors are specialised for industrial applications and it is difficult
to find a compromise between the characteristics...

There are some sensors specialised for foor measurements (from companies like
Tekscan, Interlink, Paromed) but extra modules (acquisition circuit,
amplifiers, A/Ds ) are needed for connection to a mP.

It would be very useful, if someone have used such a commercial system or
have developed a prototype one, so as to give me some info.

Thank you in advance,
Effie
