Abstract

The Kent shear system is introduced and preliminary clinical results are presented. A technique utilising copolymer piezoelectric film has allowed the manufacture of biaxial in-shoe transducers capable of simultaneously measuring two orthogonal shear forces. Bipedal measurements are carried out inside everyday footwear over multiple footsteps.
