Health-Monitoring Insoles
The ‘Biometric Shoe Sole’ Maps Your Unique Footprint

By: Cody Turner (Star) Aug 6, 12

With the invention of eye scans, fingerprinting and voice recognition, it was only a matter of time until footprints would be used as a form of identification; the ‘Biometric Shoe Sole’ is here to personalize your strut.

This new form of personal verification is currently being developed by researchers with a $1.5 million budget. The Pedo-Biometrics Lab at Carnegie Mellon has researchers who are working to create an insole that monitors a persons walking patterns. The insole will rate how much pressure is applied to each foot, and monitor gait. This new technology will be used to gain clearance to top secret buildings by judging whether or not the shore bearer is actually who they claim to be.

The idea may seem a bit out of the ordinary, but researchers have been studying the walking patterns of individuals for years. This new technology will help monitor a person’s health overtime by monitoring the way that they strut.
