In recent years, many people enjoy taking exercise outside. The most popular exercise is jogging. It has lowest equipment requirement and most people can do it. However, there are a lot of people injury while jogging. This is due to incorrect jogging position. This work applies pressure sensing modulo to sensing the pressure of the feet when user is jogging. The database can record each measurement. Training instructor can use the data recorded in the database to adjust user’s jogging position to reduce the risk of injury and promote use’s personal best record.
