    Hello, I registered here for sensor advice.
    I need a sensor which can be attached to the bottom of my foot to measure the force of a step. I need something that will survive repeated stomping and is relatively flat (so I can walk with it on the bottom of my foot). I'm new to electronics so I don't know where to begin, but my first thought was some sort of robust air bladder coupled with a pressure sensor or possibly something piezo based. What do they use in electronic drum pads?

    why do you want to measure this force?

    Ok, figured it out. Seems piezos are the way to go.
