A method to calculate the complete ground reaction force (GRF) components from the vertical GRF measured with pressure insoles is presented and validated. With this approach it is possible to measure several consecutive steps without any constraint on foot placement and compute a standard inverse dynamics analysis with the estimated GRF.
