loadglove: precise hand force measurements

measures the force across the hand during activities performed in ergonomics, manufacturing quality control, and biomechanics.

 
loadglove hand force measurement

loadglove detects the normal force acting on the sensors placed on the fingers and the palm. The force sensor is the ideal solution for mobile applications in which the load on the hand is to be monitored in daily routine.

loadpad and buttonsens

The loadglove utilizes fully calibrated, capacitive sensor buttonsesn and loadpad, made of textile materials which are connected to small and lightweight electronics. It consists of 1 loadpad sensor for the palm and 1-13 buttonsens sensors for the fingers. It either communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth with a mobile device or can also be connected via cable to novel’s industrial pliance measuring systems.

loadapp

Data acquisition, real-time transmission via Bluetooth, and data evaluation is captured with the loadapp. The app displays force over time and provides immediate feedback regarding the applied force via an auditory, visual, or vibratory signal. The measured data can be stored on the smartphone and to the cloud and also transferred to a computer for detailed analysis.
