The purpose of this study was to validate the accuracy of MilestonePod (MSP) wireless running sensors and IMeasureU inertial measurement units with custom algorithms (IMU) for subjects wearing combat boots while walking and running. Results indicate that in general, the IMU demonstrates large inaccuracies for both running and walking, while the MSP demonstrates large inaccuracies for walking, but is reasonably accurate for three of the four variables studied while running.
