This work analyzed the potential applications of ceramic piezoelectrics as sensors of kinematic and kinetic parameters in the field of the biomechanics and biomedicine. On the basis of a theoretically analysis of the sensor a Finite Element Analysis of the harmonic shown the appearance of field gradients between the electrodes. A piezoelectric sensor is proposed as triaxial force transducer for plantar pressure measurement during human walking.
