Abstract
The Exercise Load Measurement Insole (ELMI) is a system that is designed to measure normal and shear foot forces during exercise. The ELMI system is lightweight, portable, unobtrusive, and its versatility allows it to be used for many purposes outside of exercise load measurement and study. At the heart of ELMI is an innovative sensor design that when configured in an array can measure full foot normal and shear loads simultaneously. The sensor design allows for normal forces to be measured in compression, while both lateral and longitudinal forces can be measured in shear. The normal and shear sensitivity can be customized for different specifications, and even stacked for graded sensitivity, if desired. The result can be placed in an array and integrated into a shoe without affecting user operation.
