Dear all ;

I am currently working on design and development a tri-axial
transducer (13mm^2) using piezo-electric film.

I think this transducer has many applications, one of which I am
aiming for to measure the step by step in-shoe tri-axial force (a
vertical and two shears) instantly.

I have few questions that I am looking for answers, I will be happy
and grateful if somebody up there that cad help me answering some
of my questions:

1. Are under foot in-shoe Tri-axial measurements (Vertical-Shear)
medically significant? Why?

2. What the measurements results expected to show the professional ?

3. I have tremandace problems calibrating the shear components of
the transducer with at least 98% accuracy and measuring the
cross-talks. Do you know of any system that can help ?

4. Are there any other applications that a Tri-axial transducer can
be used for (medical or non-medical) ?

Your help will be appreciated.

Thank you
