The paper presents an application of a wearable system capable of measuring the amount of pressure applied on different sections of the foot. The main aim of this system is to investigate a real time therapeutic feedback using the display obtained through the mobile phone for stroke patients. The analysis of pressure is done using piezoelectric force sensors (FlexiForce sensors). The sensors are mounted on various positions of the sole according to the pressure distribution under symptom-free feet [1].
