Measure. Analyze. improve!

Application Areas

eSHOE offers a wide variety of application options.

Mobile Gait Analysis

Analyzing human gait without the constraints of a gait laboratory (limited space, cumbersome equipment, in-the-spotlight situation).

Rehabilitation Support

Keep track of a patient’s progress and offering motivating exergames to improve the rehabilitation success.

Medical Research

eSHOE also represents a novel tool for medical research purposes.

Sports Analysis

New measurement possibilities for  hobby and professional athletes. Theoretical evaluation and proof-of-concept studies performed for running and golf tee.


In the course of eSHOE’s development a number of research projects were carried out. Below, the three most important cornerstones can be found.

Partial weight bearing

eSHOE insoles can be implemented to provide patients with feedback during the early mobilization process after lower body operations to improve their compliance with partial weight bearing limitations.

Mobile gait analysis & therapy progress monitoring

The detection of standard gait parameters in eSHOE’s raw data was a basic requirement. These results have been validated against golden standard methods. From there on out
a proof-of-concept for the monitoring of the therapy progress of hip fracture patients was attempted.

eSHOE was expanded into a distributed system to support the rehabilitation process of stroke patients at home after they left inpatient care in the nationally funded (FFG) research project ‘MISTRAAL’.

Funding & Cooperation

eSHOE’s results could on the one hand be achieved by the voluntary commitment of a lot of people. Many students put in their time and effort in the courses of their PhD, Master’s and Bachelor’s theses. On the other hand the project was partially funded by the Austrian research promotion agency (FFG) in the form of two cooperative research projects. These projects would not have been possible or successful without these valuable partners.
