PPS Enhances Wireless Tactile Force Measurement System with Pressure Sensors

A sensor manufacturing company, Pressure Profile Systems has released the improved FingerTPS II, a grasp force measurement system. The wireless tactile pressure sensor, the FingerTPS II system integrates capacitive-based pressure sensors and is a user-configurable sensor solution.

Enhanced FingerTPS II

Designed for use in a range of applications such as in consumer product design, medical and ergonomics, the FingerTPS system can be used to quantify the force applied by a grasp or a finger while opening bottles, operating machinery or hand tools and while squeezing. Medical practitioners benefit by studying massage therapy or chiropractic techniques as well as hand and finger pressure applied in surgical procedures using the FingerTPS sensors. The data collected by the system can be analyzed to improve the design of the application or modify the therapy technique. Enabling faster set-up, the FingerTPS II makes the calibration process easier with reference sensors and new algorithms. A new stand and encasing system offers better sensor protection, whereas sensor material used ensure better fit for more precise data collection.

The Chief Executive Officer of Pressure Profile Systems, Dr Jae Son expressed his excitement by stating that the improvements have been made to the set-up, data collection, operation and installation of the wireless FingerTPS system. The featured sensors are made of conductive Lycra, which is stretchable, conforms to varying finger movements as well as shapes. The soft material is comfortable and is available in various sizes for inner phalanges, palm and finger tips.

The Chameleon TVR software developed by Pressure Profile provides real-time analysis, visualization and playback of the data collected by the enhanced FingerTPS II. The software provides auto-detection of sensor connections, one-touch calibration and DVD-like capabilities.
