A Touch of Genius

December 1, 2006 By: Stephanie vL Henkel, Sensors Sensors


FingerTPS, a line of capacitive tactile pressure sensors mounted on stretchable fabric designed to be worn on a person's fingertips and palm, can measure the pressures exerted while the person uses a tool or performs some other action. The technology could also quantify pain by objectively determining the sensitivity of injured tissues to touch. Other applications include product design and CPR training for use on infants.
