Dear all,
I am searching for a method to measure the force or the pressure under the contact area of a cane when the subject is walking along the walkway. I am wondering if any members could advise me on the most appropriate device, I read about such devices like Smartcane System which provides capabilities for remote monitoring and local signal processing, by appropriate I mean; the device which could be synchronized with our Qualisys motion capture system.
I'll be glad to have help about this topic.
thanks in advance.
