In the area of the biomechanics or the rehabilitation, movement analysis instrument has been developed. However, almost of them are attended with the feeling of a constraint, or the measurement place will be limited.
We tried to make sensor shoes which can survey operation of the leg without a feeling of a restraint as much as possible.
