Improving Medical Devices with Force Sensing Technology


This session will explore the exciting new trend toward designing smart medical devices that provide critical force feedback to eliminate guesswork, improve outcomes, and increase consistency.

Technical topics covered will include the unique advantages of force sensing resistor technology over traditional technologies such as strain gauges and load cells. These advantages include simpler electronics, wider dynamic range, ease of integration, and lower cost. We will highlight how thin and flexible sensors have enhanced a wide range of medical device applications to providing force feedback and make the products smart.
