Given the important role of human contact in physical therapy, there is a natural vulnerability to human error. Force-sensitive devices that help physical therapists quantify how they interact with patients, benchmark their progress, and build confidence in their treatment methods, can be key tools to advance the future of physical therapy.

This June 2018 Sensors Technology article -- written by Tekscan's VP of Sensors Mark Lowe -- shares creative physical therapy treatment concepts for ultra-thin force-sensing technologies, like FlexiForce touch sensors.
