    Has anyone used the MediLogic
    http://www.medilogic.com/index.php?id=88&L=1

    I've contacted them for the prices and its cheaper then the Pedar and more expensive then the F-scan

    However, I wanted to see if anyone had any problems with it
    if it was as reliable as the Pedar and if I had to replace the insoles very often in practice?

  2. Does it measure forces in 3-dimensions?

    I've played with their in-shoe system while doing a competitive analysis. The data flyer for it is at:
    http://medilogic.de/fileadmin/PDF/medilogic_Insole_EN.pdf

    The system seemed to work just fine.
    Advantages:
    1. They claim to have pretty much an unlimited number of uses for the in-shoe mats (unlike F-Scan mats which have a finite lifespan).
    2. Slick wireless unit. It records at something like 250Hz. When I tested it, we were routinely using it up to 100' from the base unit.
    3. Good dynamic range and repeatability in our controlled test fixture which applies a known/controlled force/area.

    Disadvantages:
    1. The in-shoe mat was not as thin as F-Scan and since it was not generally considered disposable, you were pretty reluctant to trim it.
    2. Expensive
    3. The software analysis tools did not have anywhere near the depth of F-Scan
    4. The data was sparce with points about every 15mm in the logitudinal axis and about every 8mm in the width axis

    Complete disclosure: I have no affilliation of any kind with MediLogic. Although I know the folks over at F-Scan and Amfit has at times co-presented products with F-Scan at tradeshows and meetings, I have no affilliation with F-Scan/Tekscan either.
