Abstract: Plantar pressure assessment devices are commonly employed in scientific and clinical settings, providing data that will optimize patient assessments and evaluate the treatment outcomes.  In this article we review the type of pressure sensors, sensor configurations including the number and arrangement of the sensors, and data processing, analysis and presentation used in in-shoe devices. Possible new applications in the future are also discussed. Both pressure distribution platform systems and in-shoe systems have been developed, and each approach has its advantages and disadvantages, but, in general, in-shoe systems are preferable. Although there are still device limitations which must be overcome, the technique of in-shoe measurement has opened the door to a whole new realm of plantar pressure studies both in research and clinical practice.
