Force Sensors for Medical Training Devices

Force Sensors for Medical Training Devices

FlexiForce sensor technology - also known as FSR – measures compressive forces between nearly any two surfaces. The FlexiForce sensors are ideal for embedding into devices, as they address design challenges that load cells, strain gauges, and MEMs sensors cannot. FlexiForce sensors do not require complex electronics or expensive routine factory recalibration.

Ultra-thin force-sensitive resistor technology can be used to set new standards in medical care. The aim of this webinar is to inform its viewers of the many ways that training devices embedded with force measuring capabilities can help prepare future medical professionals and how FlexiForce sensors can help make an imagined device a reality.

In this webinar, Edward Haidar, FlexiForce Product Manager and Applications Engineer, outlines the four most common uses for FlexiForce sensors in an embedded design, along with various application concepts and real-world medical training devices that use FlexiForce sensors to capture and measure force.

Key Topics

  • The innovation and technologies that are part of the sensor integration process
  • How this innovation can be deployed in the medical field
  • Medical training devices force sensors
  • How force-sensitive medical training devices can be used to develop high standards for how medical professionals operate. 


Edward Haidar is a FlexiForce Product Manager and Applications Engineer with expertise in FLexiForce sensor integration and industries such as medical infusion pumps, surgical instruments, consumer electronics, and physical rehabilitation equipment.
