A company called DigiSole is working on a smartphone-connected, pressure tracking insole and is looking to turn it into a real-world product through a crowdfunding campaign.
These high-tech insoles are dedicated to making users better athletes while improving their quality of life. DigiSoles come equipped with thinnest and most flexible Force Sensing Resistors (FSR) in the market, providing superior linearity and accuracy, as well as increased flexibility. As a result, DigiSoles go beyond basic activity tracking like steps taken or calories burned, and can also monitor and learn the way you move while on your feet.
Using advanced pressure mapping technology, DigiSoles provide users with pro-athlete performance data like foot weight distribution during activities like running, cycling, walking, or just standing around.
Using advanced pressure mapping technology, DigiSoles provide users with pro-athlete performance data like foot weight distribution during different activities.Comfortable and durable, DigiSoles easily swap in and out of your favorite footwear. They have a thin design that “honors and maintains your footwear’s original comfort and space.” What’s more, DigiSoles will also read and monitor the good and bad habits you exhibit during all of your activities, and present the findings through an accompanying mobile app.
Fitness tracking aside, DigiSoles will find its users among those undergoing rehabilitation, and those monitoring other people’s recovery. Or, they could be used to inform users about their bad habits around the workplace.
DigiSoles are started after folks behind the idea figured that there are no low-cost professional grade activity monitors available for recreational athletes. So they turned to Kickstarter to make one. The campaign is looking to raise $50,000, while the single package is going for $175 (Early Signature Edition). Check it out, but only after you’ve watched the demo video below. 😉
