Conclusion Smart insoles offer a great advantage for individual and flexible ambulant usage in the form of continuous control for postoperative patients during their rehabilitation process. Smart insoles are characterized by very good handling and high comfort. Their performance is limited by the sole’s thickness, the external influences such as e.g. water, humidity, sweat or change in temperature which have been considered by the use of compensation techniques to guarantee accurate measurements independent from the mentioned influences. But, due to continuous technological improvements in the field of sensor materials and dimensions, the number and area of applications of smart sensor soles will increase in the future and offer the opportunity to cover new branches and innovative markets.
