  • Re: Force on Feet w/without grocery cart

    I am aware of a product that Chattanooga Group, Inc. is coming out with in
    the next several months which may serve your purpose. It is called the
    AccuTread System, and it is comprised of a post operative, open toe style
    shoe in 3 sizes and a wireless receiver unit. Weight bearing data is
    transmitted and displayed on an LED readout window on the reciever. It has
    several functions, one of which indicates force applied up to 220 pounds. A
    peak and hold feature displays the maximum force for each step and holds it
    on the display until another step is taken. It can also be set to test the
    user's ability to maintain a range, and it automatically calculates an
    accuracy rating for up to 600 steps. The shoe is not of a design that would
    be useful while jogging, but you could get accurate data while walking. It
    was designed to assess and treat a variety of weight bearing conditions, so
    it may work for you.

    You can call Chattanooga Group for information at 1-800-592-7329 or Email me
    at and I'll be glad to give you as much info as I can.
