Shoe-based sensor system smartens up gait rehabilitation and therapy

submitted by: nsf
It may look like an insole, but this Smart Shoes system developed at the Mechanical Systems Control Lab at UC Berkeley could help physical therapists get their patients walking better, faster. Sensors capture information to create a detailed picture of the patient's gait and walking abnormalities, while real-time visual feedback helps patients and therapists see and measure change and progress. The result: made-to-order physical therapy for maximum impact. Credit: National Science...

Basic Research to Bridge Sensors

submitted by: nsf
Mehdi Kalantari Khandani at the University of Maryland has created a sensor system that constantly monitors different types of stresses on bridge structures and, when it detects anything unusual, alerts those who need to know. But Mehdi's initial research had nothing to do with bridges. This is the story of how Dr. Khandani's basic research on ultra-low-power sensor networks ultimately led to low-maintenance bridge sensors that can help keep an eye on the structural integrity of our...
