Launch of Breakthrough Bra Pressure Measurement System with Highly Sensitive Tactile Sensors

Launch of Breakthrough Bra Pressure Measurement System with Highly Sensitive Tactile Sensors

Pressure Profile Systems, Inc. (PPS) today announced a Bra Pressure Measurement System that allows bra manufacturers a more quantitative approach to test comfort and fit while developing their next-generation products. The newly released system is the first of its kind for this application. Unlike any other tactile sensing technologies, the Bra Pressure Measurement System is capable of resolving to pressures as low as 0.01 psi or 0.5mmHg while also conforming to complex shapes of the body – all without sacrificing accuracy or repeatability performance.

Sensors Inside Football Player’s Helmets Help Measure Force of On-Field Hits

Sensors Inside Football Player’s Helmets Help Measure Force of On-Field Hits

In football, a tackle can supply 100 G’s of force or more, well above the amount that can cause a concussion and more than 10 times the force of an F-16 jet roll maneuver. Now, University of Florida Health researchers are using the helmets of Gator football players to help measure the force of on-field hits as part of ongoing efforts to better understand and prevent concussions and treat them before they cause lasting damage.
