In this paper, the design and development of a plantar pressure measuring insole was presented. The key features of this insole are cost-effectiveness, good working pressure detection range, portable, wireless data transfer, real-time data analysis and relative accuracy. Some preliminary results were presented to show feasibility of calibration and accuracy of the smart insoles. Real-time visualization of pressure mapping of the foot sole offers the end-user and clinicians comprehensive and convenient way of understanding what the feet experience under different environmental conditions. Some of the potential applications of this device include foot ulcer prevention, balance analysis, rehabilitation and sports performance analysis
