Evaluate Ergonomic Measurements with Pressure Mapping

Acquiring and evaluating ergonomic measurements is a difficult challenge. Egronomic engineers must find a way to maximize efficiency and productivity while reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. Tactile pressure mapping technology from Tekscan gives engineers the insight needed for various applications in this field.

  • Better understanding of ergonomics
    • Design optimization
    • Verify comfort
    • Ergonomic assessment
    • Understand body shifts in a static chair or an application with a moving vehicle – ingress/outgress
    • Analyze comfort of different materials for seat design
    • Study carpal tunnel and repetitive motion syndrome
    • Analyze hold on various tools and sports equipment
  • Analysis tool provides insights for a better understanding of surface behavior
  • Minimally invasive high resolution application specific sensors that are thin and flexible
