Instrumented insole for weight measurement of frail people

Abstract

In this paper, we describe an instrumented shoe insole designed to collect the weight data of a person during his or her daily activities. This research is within a more global project about new wearable systems for monitoring human health status. The work presented compares two solutions: one based on a force-sensing resistor and another one on a pressure sensor. This paper describes the insole device that integrates specific sensors to get weight data and the test bench developed to characterize their performances. The first results show that a 1kg weight change can be obtained which is perfectly meets the needs of healthcare
professionals.

Wireless Data Transmission


The wireless data transmission from OpenGo Sensor Insoles to the mobile device uses intelligent handshake technology to avoid the loss of data packages, even when the connection quality is below 100 %.

Typical wireless range of the Bluetooth Low Energy connection in indoor settings is ≥ 10 m, in in-field settings up to 20 m.
