See How Medical Devices Embedded with FlexiForce Sensor Technology Help Elderly or At-Risk People Continue Living Independently

With the population of older adults on the rise, design engineers are challenged with designing responsive, non-invasive, user-friendly medical devices that cater to the needs of an older generation. There are a variety of assistive devices used amongst the geriatric population, including activity monitoring systems, smart mobility devices, as well as occupational and physical therapy devices. 

Given the role force exchanges play in several of these processes, ultra-thin FlexiForce™ touch sensor technology can become a key embedded component in an assistive medical device design to improve the effectiveness of patient care, while providing constant, consistent monitoring of the individual's health. 

This eBook presents concepts for assistive medical devices designed with FlexiForce sensors that help aging or at-risk patients continue to live independently, and provide peace-of-mind to their loved ones or caretakers.
