Sensors inside the oral cavity!

We propose a new solution for the measurement of pressure inside the oral cavity. The proposed device has been designed with the purpose of measuring the tongue pressure on the palate directly in the oral cavity and transmitting the data wirelessly. The device is minimally invasive, because no cable is used to connect the pressure […]

Instrumented Crutches

Instrumented Crutches

This abstract describes synthetically the design, development and characterization of two wireless instrumented crutches for monitoring lower-limb rehabilitation activities. These sensorized crutches allow monitoring axial and shear forces and tilt angles in real time. Each crutch is composed of three strain-gauge bridges measuring axial and shear forces, a conditioning and transmission circuit, a tri-axial accelerometer […]
