|Germany-based Moticon’s OpenGo sensor shoe insoles can measure weightbearing, balance, acceleration, and foot temperature. The insoles incorporate pressure sensors, a 3-D accelerometer, and a temperature sensor, as well integrated storage to provide continuous monitoring for up to four weeks. The data collected can be streamed in real time to a computer or mobile device or stored on an accompanying ANT+-enabled flash drive. The device could be useful in clinical research as well as athletics.
