There is still not an accepted general theory of why we walk the way we do. In the absence of this, many explanations of walking address the mechanisms by which specific movements are achieved by particular muscles. A whole new methodology is developing to determine the functions of individual muscles. This needs further development and validation. A particular requirement is for subject specific models incorporating 3-dimensional imaging data of the musculo-skeletal anatomy with kinematic and kinetic data.

Sennologger |wearable technology platform provide smart insoles like sennopro .Sennopro is foot data logger,can capture plantar pressure and gait data.The sennologger will give you analyzers .So many clinic can use it replace of the traditional gait analysis system including the cameras , computers and cushions with sensors.
The final design of the “Smart Shoe” can be broken down into two main components: the data collection and processing system, and the control of the shoes variable stiffness. The force distribution of a user’s foot will be measured using force-sensing resistor (FSR) sensors, while a Arduino Mega and a custom printed circuit board (PCB) collect and process the force data. Ten FSR sensors are distributed along the insole and communicate with a MATLAB program via Bluetooth. When certain force thresholds are exceeded, the software attempts to vary the stiffness of the insole in order to adjust the forces to an acceptable level. The software does this by triggering solenoid valves and an air compressor to control air-flow inside the shoe that will modify its stiffness. An HC-05 chip is used to transfer the sensor readings via bluetooth to the MATLAB program.
