Runners are always struggling with injuries from overuse and repetitive impact. For the runner, the main area that is affected is their feet, Knees, and legs. Most of these are caused by the runner starting up to fast and high mileage or repeating bad technique that can cause lots of impact strain in your foot, knee, or leg. When researching and experiencing some of these issues a solution [...] to help prevent some of these injuries is to use pressure sensors that will show where the pressure is being distributed throughout the foot. Putting sensors in your shoes allow you to find where the most impact is being placed on your foot. The sensors will be wired on an insole that can be taken in and out of shoes for different people to use. The sensors will collect the data where the pressure is being applied and then the data will be uploaded to a computer program that athlete and coaches can analyze and improve their technique as needed.
