Digital Odometer Monitors Running Shoe Lifespan
Keep track of accumulated miles and record emergency information on your laces with this tiny clip on device.
Training in worn-out shoes is one of the most common causes of running-related injuries. Cushioning and stability lessens as miles accumulate on a pair of shoes, increasing the stress and impact per step that can lead to joint pain, muscle fatigue, shin splints and more.
Offering runners a digital log of a shoe’s wear and tear, the MilestonePod registers how far a shoe has traveled, and displays in real-time on a digital screen that clips to the wearer’s laces.
To take the odometer-like reading, MilestonePod sensors measure foot positioning around 100 times a second, interpreted by an algorithm that estimates running and walking movements.
