In this paper we present SmartSock, a physical activity and gait measuring system integrated inside a sock. To achieve its goal, it uses force and acceleration sensors that track the wearer’s movements. The device is fitted with a radio transceiver in order to convey measured information to listening computers or mobiles. Contrary to previous works which integrate electronic modules into custom shoes, all sensors, control, power and wireless components are integrated on the same sock. Therefore, the user is not restricted to wear a customized pair of shoes. A power saving mechanism has been developed in order to improve the longevity of the integrated rechargeable battery.
