The Xsens Force Shoes™ perform as well in microgravity as they did in ground evaluations, and consistently measure repeated loads within a single session. The Force Shoes™ operated well in both wired and Bluetooth mode, which provides confidence that future Bluetooth devices flown to ISS will operate as expected. Analysis of Force Shoe™ data revealed an asymmetry in left to right foot loading, and will be investigated further. The Xsens Force Shoe appears to be a reliable tool for under foot load measurements for use in non-locomotor activity aboard ISS.
