Kinematics study uses 3D printed wand markers to improve foot motion tracking

Researchers from Belgium have developed an in-shoe foot analysis tool that uses 3D printed markers, consisting of a baseplate and a wand marker, to track foot motion. The kinematics system could improve future footwear designs. Analysis of foot kinematics can be useful for a variety of reasons. Tracking movement of the feet can allow medical professionals to analyze and assess problems associated with gait, while those in the sporting world can also use such analysis to help athletes improve their performance. Finding out more about how our feet move can also lead to better sporting and everyday footwear. There […]
