Medical device design engineers face a noble yet challenging task: to design minimally-invasive treatment technologies that help patients live a normal life.

Today, more and more patients with medical conditions ranging from arthritis to multiple sclerosis are electing to use home-use therapeutic & drug delivery devices for their treatments, including self-injectors, wearable auto-injectors, and similar treatment methods. Most of these types of devices in some way require a change in force to function. Whether that change in force happens manually by the patient, or automatically by the device, the ability to capture and/or monitor these changes in force can play a major role in streamlining different processes.

This free eBook explains how thin, flexible, low-power force sensors offer design engineers greater flexibility than ever in accurately capturing these changes in force.
