A method for sports shoe machinery endurance testing: Modification of ISO 22675 prosthetic foot test machine for heel-to-toe running movement
This paper describes a method for testing in running shoes based on a test method for endurance testing of prosthetic feet (ISO 22675:2006). A specific step from human running motion was selected and processed to be feed into the test machine software. A motion capture system tracks the motion of the shoe and the machine. Forces and moments are acquired with a 6-DoF load cell. The test shows the capability of this approach to reproduce dynamics of heel-to-toe running motion. For this specific test scenario 60% of real time running speed was achieved while forces and moments were reproducible.
