Abstract

In gait analysis, there is growing awareness of the

diagnosis and treatment assessment of pathological foot disorders.

between the plantar surface of the foot and the shoe. Although

and vertical forces under the foot has increased little has been done

constructing devices capable of carrying out this task in the in-shoe

and characteristics of a miniature triaxial transducer measuring

is capable of simultaneously measuring three orthogonal forces

single element piezoelectric copolymer P(VDF-TrFE). Transducer

is presented. As well as in-shoe force measurement, this

applications, e.g., prosthetic interface forces, handgrip

forces, sport, robotics, etc.
