Abstrakt

In this demo, we present our FootStriker prototype in companion to the full paper. FootStriker detects heel striking while running with a pressure-sensitive insole and corrects the striking in real-time to mid-/forefoot running by applying electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) on one of the calf muscles. The device will be worn and demonstrated by the presenter but if possible, it can also be tested directly by the conference attendees. We provide them with visual realtime feedback for demonstration purposes.
