Aimed at being a more comprehensive alternative to the wrist worn fitness bands, FootLogger is a high-tech system pioneered by the team of engineers at 3L Labs. Each FootLogger insole boasts a three-axis accelerometer in addition to eight pressure sensors that collect, transmit and store data around the weight distribution of each step and much more.

The impressive FootLogger technology provides a new set of data that wristband-style activity trackers do not, which can be applied in a wide variety of ways depending on what field you are in. For healthcare professionals, the smart insoles provide a bevy of information involving the alignment of the spine, while high-performance athletes can figure out if they are placing and transferring their weight correctly.
