Tekscan, Inc., is pleased to introduce I-Scan 9, a new pressure mapping software interface developed to improve user experience by making interface pressure analysis more intuitive, streamlined, and organized.
The treatment of many medical issues like abnormal gait and muscular disorders require an accurate sensing of applied pressure.
Superior Sensor Technology today announced that Particles Plus has adopted Superior Sensor’s differential pressure sensor technology in their next-generation air quality monitoring instruments for clean rooms and OEM applications.
According to computer scientists at the University of Bath, garment seams sewn with conductive yarn can be utilized to monitor body motion precisely when placed strategically.
As a designer and manufacturer of measurement sensor components and a distribution partner for other leading sensor suppliers, Variohm EuroSensor offers a comprehensive range of pressure transducers that find widespread use for measurement and monitoring tasks in industrial machinery, medical equipment, science and research projects, automotive engineering and test, and many other areas.
A new specially designed pressure-sensitive cap could help protect athletes from serious head injuries.
Many athletes, from football players to equestrians, rely on helmets to protect their heads from impacts or falls. However, a loose or improperly fitted helmet could leave them vulnerable to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), a leading cause of death or disability in the U.S. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Sensors have developed a highly sensitive pressure sensor cap that, when worn under a helmet, could help reveal whether the headgear is a perfect fit.
Pressure sensors perform a vital role in the development of effective robotic solutions for an ever-increasingly diverse and in some cases highly specialised manufacturing applications. One recent example of this is a high-precision pressure monitoring application for concrete processing using 3D printing robots resulting in automated concrete prints, without the need for complex formwork.
The development of miniature laser distance sensors which provide exceptional measurement performance are a vital component in today’s more compact machines and systems, helping manufacturers to meet the ever-present demands for optimum efficiency. The new miniaturised OM20 and OM30 laser sensors available from sensing and instrumentation specialist BAUMER are a good example being perfectly suited to handling precise measurement tasks, despite their ultra-compact size.
Wearable fitness trackers are rapidly growing in popularity. A barometric pressure sensor enables the wearable to detect changes in the user’s elevation, for example when walking up or down stairs, for calculating the number of calories that the user is burning.
