For many of us, life is complicated enough without being constantly reminded about our medical situations. This is why medical device design engineers are all faced with a challenging but noble task: to develop effective, minimally-invasive treatment technologies that help patients live a normal life.
Today, more and more patients with medical conditions ranging from arthritis to multiple sclerosis are electing to use home-use therapeutic & drug delivery devices for their treatments, including self-injectors, wearable auto-injectors, and similar treatment methods. Most of these types of devices in some way require a change in force to function. Whether that change in force is being made manually by the patient, or made automatically by the device, having the ability to capture and/or monitor these changes in force can play a major role in streamlining different processes.
This free eBook explains how FlexiForce™ touch sensors offer greater flexibility than other force-sensing alternatives to capture these changes in force. It will also provide a mix of real-world and conceptual examples of how FlexiForce can better equip these devices to satisfy patient needs.
