Force Sensor Manufacturer, Tekscan, Inc. Wins "Best of Tradeshow" for MDM Minneapolis Exhibition
Date:9/29/2009

le."

Some of the issues facing design engineers when it comes to selecting the right sensor technology for their product design include cost, accuracy, and turnaround time, to name a few. Tekscan's work with the MammaCare® device illustrates the importance of working with the right force sensor supplier. The recognized medical and scientific standard for clinical breast examination efficiency, MammaCare is the training platform used in the US and Europe to teach health professionals to perform effective breast palpation. When MammaCare needed a more stable, durable, cost-effective tactile force transducer for their PAD (Palpation Proficiency and Assessment Device), they turned to Tekscan.

The PAD system is comprised of tactually accurate breast models, instrumented with custom FlexiForce® sensors. The ultra-thin sensor provided by Tekscan contains multiple force sensing points which enable the system to confirm correct placement of the fingers, as well as the level of force applied by the fingers. These paper-thin, flexible force sensors locate and relay over 1000 levels of examination pressure within each square centimeter via a digital signal processor. This ability to quantify human palpation allows MammaCare to confidently certify whether clinicians have demonstrated appropriate examination skill.

Visit Tekscan's booth (#1137) at MDM Minneapolis to discuss your force sensing needs with one of our experienced engineers. In the meantime, download a free e-book for more concrete examples of companies whose OEM products are benefitting from thin, flexible, low-power FlexiForce® force sensors.
