Elevate User Comfort

When designing products with human interaction at the centre, like tools, sports equipment and car interiors, it can be challenging to balance performance requirements with the need to maximize comfort and usability. Pressure sensors provide the means to quantify human comfort factors for applications like:

  • How much hand pressure is required to turn a steering wheel, open a car door or pull a hand brake?
  • How is pressure distributed between a backpack shoulder harness and waist belt?
  • How different bicycle saddle designs change contact area and pressure distribution?
  • How is foot pressure distributed when an elite swimmer pushes off the pool wall?

This information is important when it comes to creating comfortable user interactions, preventing injury andimproving performance. In many circumstances, our pressure sensors are being used to improve grip design, or redistribute pressure to optimize for comfort, and improve effectiveness of designs when considering a wide range of users.

Pressure sensors ideal for measuring human comfort factors

Conformability, image quality, and durability are imperative in comfort and ingress/egress analysis. This is especially true in ergonomic applications where factors like hand force measurement are being measured.

For testing sessions to proceed smoothly and efficiently, pressure sensors must be able to retain their calibration over multiple trials and across a series of subjects. Our high performance LX sensors provide consistent measurement even under harsh conditions.

For test engineers, the improved calibration stability leads to consistent data over thousands of cycles, which leads to reduced re-calibration time and a much lower total cost of ownership.

Specifications & Performance

A variety of shapes, resolutions and pressure ranges are available for testing ergonomic designs from low to high pressures. Our sensors are thin, durable, and conform easily to match the surface being measured.
