An innovative new sensor has the potential to revolutionize running shoes
Researchers at the University of Oregon, led by Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance member Keat Ghee Ong, have developed a revolutionary sensor that measures real-time running data that existing wearables devices are unable to detect. .
Graduate Student Gabi Lorenzo designed running shoes with a built-in 1-inch by 1.5-inch sensor. This unique sensor can measure shear forces, which previously required technical equipment in a lab, and this data that could be used to improve training and prevent injuries in runners. Postdoctoral researcher Mike McGeehanuses the high-tech shoes for running performance research, but also points out that the data these shoes provide have several health applications.
