Printed Force Sensors: Proven Technology Addresses New Design Demands

Printed sensors of all kinds have generated a lot of buzz across the medical device design community in recent years. This growing interest is due in large part to an industry-wide prioritization toward the development of user-centered medical devices that give patients more freedom and control over their treatment process. Printed sensors help design engineers address demands for more affordable, reliable, comfortable (lightweight), and easy-to-use medical devices, because they share many of these same attributes.

However, what some design engineers may not realize is that certain printed sensor technologies – especially printed force sensors – have a decades-long successful track record for enabling innovative features in medical devices, while keeping the design compact and intuitive.

This presentation will answer many of the technical questions surrounding printed force sensing technologies, and share ways this sensor technology can be used to develop advanced medical devices.
