Pressure Measurement Systems

Evaluate pressure distribution data to assist with product design, manufacturing, quality, and much more

Interface pressure measurement quantifies the pressure between virtually any two contacting surfaces.

A pressure measurement system, composed of data acquisition electronics, software, and a flexible, ultra-thin pressure measuring sensor, provides detailed pressure distribution data and insightful 2D and 3D visualizations to analyze interface pressure in real-time.

That information can assist you with product design and testing, process improvement, improving clinical and research outcomes or almost any imaginable use of the technology.

Pressure Measurement System Options

Our I-Scan™ device is recommended for most interface pressure measurement applications.

The I-Scan is a versatile pressure measurement system that comes in tethered or wireless configurations, has high speed scanning capabilities, and can be modularized and extended with software or hardware add-ons.

More than 200 of our standard pressure measuring sensors in various shapes and sizes can be used with this system.

Some of the many possible insights provided by I-Scan include:

  • Measuring pressure distribution in product design
  • Verifying forces and peak pressures between two components
  • Measuring external forces
  • Reducing failures & associated costs
