The design of technological aids to assist older adults in their ageing process and to ensure proper attendance and care, despite the decreasing percentage of young people in the demographic profiles of many developed countries, requires the proper selection of sensing components, in order to come up with devices that can be easily used and integrated into everyday life.

Abstract

The design of technological aids to assist older adults in their ageing process and to ensure proper attendance and care, despite the decreasing percentage of young people in the demographic profiles of many developed countries, requires the proper selection of sensing components, in order to come up with devices that can be easily used and integrated into everyday life. This paper addresses the metrological characterization of pressure sensors to be inserted into smart insoles aimed at monitoring the older adult’s physical activity levels. Two types of sensing elements are evaluated and a recommendation provided, based on the main requirement of designing a calibration-free insole: in this case, the pressure sensor should act as a switch, and the FSR 402 Short sensing element appears to be the proper solution to adopt.
