A force bearing monitor apparatus for sports shoes, comprising
- measuring device located on a sole of a shoe,
- a first accelerometer module located at a rear end of the sole of the shoe to measure alterations of a first acceleration borne by a user's rear heel when the shoe is stridden and stepped,
- a second accelerometer module located at a front end of the sole of the shoe to measure alterations of a second acceleration borne by a user's front heel when the shoe is stridden and stepped, and
- a first signal processing unit linked to the first accelerometer module and the second accelerometer module; and an interrelation processing unit linked to the first accelerometer module and the second accelerometer module; the first signal processing unit and the interrelation processing unit processing the alterations of the first acceleration and the second acceleration against time to get a first reacting force and a second reacting force borne by the shoe, and the ratio of the first reacting force and the second reacting force is obtained to generate a control factor,
the measuring device including:

A controllable brace assembly comprising:
- a thigh brace having a thigh gyroscope attached thereto,
- a shank brace having a shank gyroscope and a shank accelerometer attached thereto, and
- a controllable knee lock coupling the thigh brace to the shank brace, the knee lock having an encoder attached thereto; at least one pressure sensor for attachment to the sole of a user's shoe; and a controller configured to receive signals from the thigh gyroscope, the shank gyroscope, the encoder, the shank accelerometer, and the at least one pressure sensor, and to transmit a first signal set to engage or disengage the controllable knee lock based on the received signals.
