loadsol® sensors enable mobile measurement of the normal ground reaction force on the plantar surface of the foot. The system can be used both for static and dynamic measurements, to accurately quantify the forces generated between the foot and the shoe.

The occurring forces provide important information concerning the kinetics of the body or element to be measured.

The textile, soft, deformable and ultra-thin sensors are designed to enable accurate assessment of gait analysis, load analysis or maximum force analysis in any environment and during any body movement, to name some applications. 

Use loadsol® to capture the interaction between foot and ground accurately, effortlessly and with flexibility.

How to utilize loadsol® and loadsol® II

loadsol® sensors are used by more than 2000 research and development facilities all over the world. Due to the flexible usability, the application are very diverse.

Sample applications:

Data collection and analysis with loadsol® app 

loadsol app is an easy to use smartphone application that helps to collect the data you are looking for. After connecting the insoles via bluetooth, the measurement can be set up and the data can be viewed in real-time or stored on the sensors. 

After the measurement the data can be downloaded from the sensors via bluetooth or via USB. The application, if required, allows for extensive display and evaluation of various parameters.

Measuring the load distribution inside the shoe.

For more than 45 years, novel has been pioneering in the field of load distribution measurement. With loadsol®, precise and accurate measurement inside the shoe is now possible for the first time for truly mobile applications.

The matchbox-sized electronics and the completely textile sensor enable measurements indoors and outdoors, in almost any environment and at virtually any movement. 

Use loadsol® to acquire reliable force data inside the shoe.

Comparing loadsol®, loadsol® II and pedar®:

The loadsol® is used for applications where the capture of the total force on the foot is needed. The loadsol® does not capture the local pressure distribution under the foot. For this application novel’s pedar system is the gold standard.
