Sensoria helps Vivobarefoot put the feet first

US wearable technology specialist Sensoria is unveiling a new pressure sensing running shoe developed for UK footwear brand Vivobarefoot at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (January 9-12).

The shoe features Sensoria Core technology, a new microelectronic component designed specifically for sensor-connected footwear. It is fitted into the shoe and connects to four pressure sensors in the plantar area to precisely detect forces like impact, foot landing and contact time. This data can be used to devise a training plan to correct the wearer’s running style. 

"The new Vivobarefoot powered by Sensoria smart shoe leverages our new microelectronics and is able to monitor – in real-time – speed, pace, cadence, GPS track, foot landing technique, time on the ground, impact score and eventually, asymmetry and toe engagement,” explained Davide Vigano, co-founder and CEO of Sensoria. “These are all important metrics to monitor natural running and reduce risk of injury.” 

Vivobarefoot has long championed the wearing of barefoot shoes to allow the feet to perform their natural function. It believes conventional footwear inhibits the innate ability of the human foot. 

“This exciting shoe helps educate the transition back to strong feet and pain free movement,” said Galahad Clark, CEO and founder of Vivobarefoot. “Through our partnership with Sensoria, we are now able to provide real time transition advice to our customers and the visual proof of the incredible sensory feedback loop between your feet and your brain.”
