The ability to measure a wide range of spray impact pressure and distribution patterns has direct applicability across a variety of industry application areas including the design and manufacture of industrial spray nozzles, paint or polyurethane spray guns, shower heads, automotive windshield wiper fluid dispensers, pepper spray dispensers and medical devices.Read More
Another promising application for capacitive tactile sensors is arterial line placement, a common, but difficult, procedure performed in a clinical setting. An arterial line is a thin catheter inserted into an artery. It is most commonly used in intensive care medicine and anesthesia to monitor blood pressure continuously and to obtain samples for blood gas analysis.Read More
PPS announces their innovative new wireless Finger Tactile Pressure Sensing system for immediate sale worldwide. FingerTPS sensors are soft, flexible sensors worn on the hand that transmit accurate, repeatable tactile force data to a PC via wireless Bluetooth connection.Read More
It’s not surprising wearable devices are becoming popular with athletes and sports scientists to try and gain a performance advantage. Brandon Larson, a technologist with the Red Bull High Performance group has experience working within this field and has led a project to collect data and provide insight to several elite surfers.Read More
Consumers are demanding more and more of their clothing, not just in terms of fit—which they expect to be precisely right—but in terms of functionality. Comfort, after all, plays a role in determining whether someone will like a product or not.Read More
The initial research was focused on determining how the pressure of a surfer’s feet is transferred to the surfboard to control it. To accomplish this, high resolution pressure mapping was used in conjunction with sensors within the insoles of ‘booties’.Read More
Extremely sensitive, thin, conformable tactile sensors will play a key role in the next generation of consumer wearable and clinical devices that measure blood pressure.Read More
Design engineers interested in integrating miniature force sensors into product designs now have an option to evaluate and integrate a new breed of capacitive technology-based sensor that can accurately, and with high repeatability, measure forces as low as 1 gram.Read More
Pressure mapping is simply the measurement and visual reporting of pressure between two contacting surfaces. In many applications, like in the medical field, pressure mapping technology is used to visualize...Read More
Though it might not always be obvious to the casual observer, the clothing worn by Olympic and professional athletes can be as sophisticated and technologically advanced as anything else in their toolbox.Read More
The Headband Sensor System from PPS is a bike/ski sensor system used for assessing the size adjustment mechanism of helmets, allowing users to measure and visualize pressure points.Read More
PPS’s Heat Press Pressure Measurement System accurately and quickly evaluates and measures the contact pressures between a heat press and mating surface during manufacturing processes where a press applies heat and pressure.Read More
Back in 2014, when the Red Bull Surf Science division wanted to apply technology to surfing to enhance athletes’ performance, they looked to PPS to help them…Read More
