SMART INSOLE
A novel wearable sensor for continues human gait analysis and evaluation
Start Date: 01/01/2018,     End Date: 30/12/2020

The basic idea of the project is to design and manufacture a smart, wearable insole with built-in pressure measurement sensors, other micro-electronic sensing elements and communication devices to tackle the challenge of efficient gait monitoring in real life. Furthermore, a smartphone application will display the sensor data in real-time via Bluetooth low energy connection. The project also aims at the development of specialized patient/citizen monitoring services which are made feasible by the Smart Insole platform. These innovations will be the basis for designing new services for the early diagnosis of specific patho-logical conditions, monitoring their development and evaluating the use of wearable sensor platforms as clinical diagnostic tools.
