The Foot:

A Data Ocean

Did you know?

Each foot contains over 200,000 nerve endings, a quarter of your body's bones and nearly one-fifth of its joints? 
Your feet silently collect and transmit a wealth of data throughout your body with every step, jump, and movement. This data offers a unique window into your health, habits, and even your environment.

We don't just see feet; We see an ocean of data waiting to be explored.

Our smart technology captures biomechanical data from the feet and translates it into actionable insights.

Co-Create the Future with Zhortech’s Technology

BUT we don't just offer data; we offer a partnership in innovation.
Our cutting-edge technology transforms everyday footwear into powerful data collectors. 

Embedded 3D motion sensors and AI analyze a myriad of different biomechanical metrics each second.

We develop customized solutions, across a variety of industries, that leverage our technology for your specific business needs.


Revolutionize patient care with data-driven insights for personalized treatment plans, improved diagnostics, and proactive monitoring.

  • Empowering Movement Specialists: Watch real-time data on movement for personalized treatment plans and improved patient outcomes.
  • Neurological Insights Through Movement: Capture nuanced movement data, vital for tailoring rehabilitation and tracking progress in patients with neurological disorders.

Case Study: Digitsole

A leading innovator in digital insoles designed for practitioners and their patients. We partnered with Digitsole to develop a next-generation insole equipped with gait analysis technology.

This product empowers podiatrists to gain deeper insights into their patients' walking patterns and recommend personalized treatment plans for improved mobility and injury prevention.

Enhance worker safety with footwear that detects fatigue or predicts falls before they happen, reducing accidents and liability costs.

  • Fall Prevention: Detect slip hazards and predict falls before they happen, keeping workers and individuals safe.
  • Fall Prevention (2): detect slip hazards and estimate shoe traction to assess fall risks, keeping workers safe.
  • Fatigue Monitoring: Identify worker fatigue through gait analysis, minimizing accident risk and promoting well-being.
  • Enhanced Rehabilitation: Track progress in physical therapy and rehabilitation programs using real-time foot data.

Optimize sport performance with real-time feedback on movement, fatigue, and injury risk.

  • Real-time Gait Analysis: Monitor foot strike patterns, pronation and supination, cadence, stride length, ground contact time and symmetry to analyze overall running form.
  • Customized Insoles: Leveraging the gait analysis, recommend a specific insole that will best support the way the user runs, minimizing the risk of injury and providing tailored comfort.
  • Personalized Coaching: Provide real-time feedback or post-run analysis to optimize running technique and efficiency.
  • Cushion Monitoring: Detect when a shoe’s cushioning is worn out and the shoe needs to be replaced.
  • Slope Detection: Measure the slope between a golfer's feet to provide crucial information for judging putt breaks.
  • Distance Measurements: Measure the distance between two points to give golfers detail on the length of a putt or to measure an approach shot.
  • Full Aiming Assistant: Combine slope and distance measurements between the ball and the hole to provide detailed putting guidance.

Use Case: BRK70

In collaboration with an innovative golf startup, we developed a smart shoe that gives golfers the tools they need to improve their putts and reduce their scores.

  • Pedal Stroke Analysis: Track foot movement throughout the pedal cycle to identify inefficiencies and optimize power transfer.
  • Cadence Monitoring: Provide real-time feedback on pedaling speed to maintain optimal efficiency.
  • Biomechanical Assessment: Analyze foot and ankle movement during pedaling to identify potential biomechanical issues that could lead to injury.
  • Imagine controlling in-game actions with a flick of your foot or a mighty jump! Zhortechs's advanced technology transforms feet into intuitive controllers, boosting player engagement and adding a layer of real-world activity to video games. It’s an innovative way to incorporate foot-based physical activity into video games using a user’s shoes instead of a pressure pad.
  • Sensors and AI track various user movements (e.g., steps, jumps, kicks) that can be translated into controller commands. Real-time movement data is wirelessly transmitted to the console or gaming platform via Bluetooth.

Use Case: Ubisoft

Digitsole partnered with Ubisoft®, a gaming industry leader, to pioneer motion-controlled gaming. Players control in-game actions with their feet, creating immersive and engaging experiences.

Optimize workouts and prevent injuries with real-time feedback on movement and fatigue levels.

  • Step Counting and Distance Tracking: Accurately monitor daily walking activity and set achievable goals.
  • Gait Analysis: Analyze more than 30 different gait metrics to provide insightful observations and detailed recommendations about how to walk more efficiently, reduce back and joint pain, improve posture, and minimize risk of injury.
  • Customized Insoles: Leveraging the gait analysis, recommend a specific insole that will best support the way the user walks, providing a tailored comfort experience.
  • Speed Optimization: Provide feedback on cadence and stride length to maximize speed and cardiovascular benefit while maintaining comfort and preventing injury.
  • Cushion Monitoring: Detect when a shoe’s cushioning is worn out and the shoe needs to be replaced.

Use case: Baliston

Launched under the Baliston brand, Zhortech developed a smartshoe to be sold to customers for everyday use. The shoe is embedded with zhortech’s smart sensor technology which analyses the customer's gait and provides real-time tracking and recommendations. The technology detects when a pair of shoes is worn out and informs the user when to send the old ones back for recycling and replacement.


Zhortech’s smart technology and biomechanical analysis provide unparalleled insights into health and performance. Our unique and small sensor modules can be integrated into most footwear, allowing measurement and analysis of movement/biomechanics where it occurs, at the ground.

This data-rich approach not only uncovers the hidden dynamics of individual health and well-being but also paves the way for bespoke solutions across various sectors.

At the core of our innovation is the ability to translate complex biomechanical data into understandable, actionable insights. Powered by advanced sensors and AI algorithms, Zhortechs’s platform delivers real-time analytics, from detecting early signs of health issues to optimizing athletic performance and enhancing workplace safety. This technology empowers businesses to offer personalized services, improve outcomes, and innovate within their industries.
