Secrets to a Stable Sensor Supply

Secrets to a Stable Sensor Supply

This webinar provides insights into the sensor supply chain and outlines some general principles and core concepts that should be considered. The aim is to enable the viewers of this webinar to formulate a sound strategy for vetting component suppliers for designing new devices or redesigning existing products.

Medical devices are an essential aspect of Tekscan’s work. Thus, this webinar explores the vital aspects that a medical device manufacturer must consider when choosing their embedded sensor component, including unit cost or piece price, indirect costs, and hidden potential risks.

As the webinar outlines, FlexiForce sensors are thin, flexible, printed sensitive resistors (otherwise known as FSR) that are at the core of Tekscan’s embedded sensor division. They measure compressive forces between almost any two surfaces, are very thin and flexible, and have a range of advantages for the medical field.

Key Topics

  • An overview of Tekscan and its expertise in supplying the key embedded component to the medical device industry.
  • Cost considerations when working with technology suppliers- specifically on how to identify and mitigate potentially hidden costs associated with an embedded component
  • Practical questions to ask an embedded component supplier that will help users gauge their stability and identify potential risks. 


  • Charlie Malacaria is the Vice President of Business Development with Tekscan.
