Sensor infused smart socks that can help athletes monitor their performance in real time have been adjudged the “Best New Wearable Technology Device” at IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA 2015, the largest printed electronics and sensor event in the world, Sensoria Inc., a leader in smart footwear, garments and IoT solutions said in a press release.

Each smart sock is infused with three thin, soft textile pressure sensors. A magnetic Bluetooth smart electronic anklet that snaps onto each smart sock collects data and transmits it wirelessly to Sensoria's mobile app and web dashboard to provide runners with real-time visual and audio feedback, as well as post-workout analysis. The sock and anklet work together to provide runners with valuable data—like foot landing, cadence and time on the ground—that they can use to improve their running form and performance, said Davide Vigano, CEO of Sensoria Inc., adding that “it has many potential applications in the sports, fitness, and medical world.”

“It's such an incredible honour to be chosen for this award and especially by such an esteemed group of industry leaders,” said Vigano, while receiving the award from Sandisk Corporation Senior Vice President, Henri Richard at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The Printed Electronics Awards recognize company innovation, success and development. The socks were selected as the winner of the “Best New Wearable Technology Device” award by an independent panel of prestigious judges that included Dr. Mounir Zok, a Senior Sports Technologist with the US Olympic Committee, and Matthew Drinkwater, the Head of Fashion Innovation Agency at the London College of Fashion.

“The smart socks can be combined with Sensoria's upper body garments to work seamlessly together as a truly wearable system for runners,” continued Vigano. “The smart sports bra and t-shirt feature integrated heart rate monitoring capability without the hassle of a chest strap. Our vision is for wearables to not feel extraneous but more like sports apparel, and no one would be the wiser that you are actually wearing an IoT device. The smart socks are an early manifestation of that goal. They are machine washable, transparent mini-computers collecting data that has never been easily available before.”

Sensoria has made available a full SDK to partners that want to develop sports, fitness and medical related scenarios. (SH)
