buttonsens®: precise finger force measurements
The buttonsens force sensor measures the force on fingers during activities performed in ergonomics, manufacturing quality control, and biomechanics. It is attached to the finger or thumb and detects the normal force acting on the sensor.
The buttonsens utilizes one fully calibrated, capacitive sensor made of textile materials which is connected to the small and lightweight loadpad electronics. It either communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth with a mobile device or can also be connected via cable to novel’s industrial pliance measuring systems.
