  • Patent number: 10976237
    Abstract: A shoe traction testing and measuring device, comprising a base frame, a rear leg assembly, a front leg assembly, a hip joint, and a piston. The piston is connected to the base frame and the rear leg assembly. A lower portion of the rear leg assembly is connected to the base frame and an upper portion of the rear leg assembly is connected to an upper portion of the front leg assembly at the hip joint. The front leg assembly comprises an articulating ankle and a replica foot, which is configured to don a shoe to be tested. When the piston actuates forward, the upper portion of the rear leg assembly tilts forward, which causes the front leg assembly to move forward and downward, simulating a step of a human, which causes the shoe on the replica foot to contact a force plate or a surface that is on top of the force plate.
