The technology that this project hopes to develop is an attempt to demystify the communication between the Individual and their body. Most of the pain and injury suffered by almost 60% of runners every year is thought to be sustained as a result of preventable faults in form or impact propagation. The scope of this project is grant and it is intended to be carried out in multiple parts: 1) sensor development, 2) sensor interpretation/app development, 3) shoe design and prototyping, 4) and the final sensor, shoe, and app integration. In this portion of the project we are focusing on Step 1.
