Sole Brother! In-Shoe Sensor Supports Physical Therapy | Video

It may look like an insole, but this Smart Shoes system developed at the Mechanical Systems Control Lab at UC Berkeley could help physical therapists get their patients walking better, faster.

Sensors capture information to create a detailed picture of the patient's gait and walking abnormalities, while real-time visual feedback helps patients and therapists see and measure change and progress. The result: patients and physical therapist don’t have far to walk for maximum rehab benefit.
