Grip tightening displacement sensor

Grip tightening displacement sensor

A French company specialised in design and manufacturing of high-precision force-torque sensors has developed a grip tightening displacement sensor (for fingers flexion-extension study).

This innovative measuring instrument is perfectly adapted to sports and medical analysis. It provides precise and reliable data available through simple and user-friendly computer interface. The company is seeking partners to develop the product and adapt it to the target application.

The sensor is a measurement tool of the Grip tightening displacement between the fingers and the thumb. It allows the study of finger flexion-extension tasks of healthy as well as motor disable subject. It also allows displacements without any resistance.

Used in rehabilitation, this along with its software interface provides: - Accurate diagnosis, - Personalized rehabilitation programs, - Quantified before/after surgery assessments, - Quantified before/after rehabilitation assessments.

This device is light, precise and easy to use. It is adaptable to any hand size. It integrates a bio-feedback in real time.

Innovative Aspects

This tightening displacement sensor is an innovation in terms of measurement tool. Used in rehabilitation, this sensor along with its software interface provides precise and reliable data available through simple and user-friendly computer interface.

Compared to other products on the market, which are for most of them only simple mechanical grips whitout any link to data recording system, the proposed Grip tightening displacement sensor, provided with its software interface, allows to adapt the rehabilitation program to the individual according to the measured data.

Type of partner sought: Industrial partners.

Specific area of activity of the partner: Force sensors, measuring device, rehabilitation, electro-medical device, medical technology, neurology, brain research, biomedical engineering, handicap aids, laboratory equipment, physiotherapy and orthopedic technology, micro-mechanics, diagnostic equipment.

Task to be performed by the partner sought: The company is seeking partners to co-develop new applications requiring the use of such grip tightening displacement sensor in the fields of medical sector, biomechanical and sports research as well as in rehabilitation.
