Biometric shoe insole provides new way to measure health-insights
A new biometric insole will make monitoring and tracking health insights simple and efficient. Analytic consulting service Pinnacle Solutions has announced its partnership with California-based wearable biometric technology company Autonomous_ID to create the BIO_SOLE.
BIO_SOLE is a shoe insert, designed to record an individual’s unique way of standing, walking, running, or gait; which creates a unique Pedo Biometric signature linked to their identity – much like a fingerprint. The insole uses pressure sensors, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and circuitry to track every part of the movement, which can be influenced by body position, weight, injury, or disease.
The insole technology also promises data security and privacy, and eliminates the security risks associated with lost swipe cards, according to Autonomous_ID’s website. Pinnacle’s analytic platform then gains insights from the insole, with the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to rapidly build thousands of advanced data models for multiple use cases.
Some of these use cases can be in health, activity, mobility and identity data which can be of interest for Health Insurance and Health Care providers, Corporate Security providers, Banking Service providers, Government and Military, as well as individuals and athletes.
Wearable technology is gaining popularity as personal data insights become more relevant to technology-based healthcare.
