FlexiForce Touch Sensors Embedded into Drug Delivery & Therapeutic Devices Help Make Treatment Easy

FlexiForce force-sensitive resistors offer greater flexibility to help make therapeutic & drug delivery devices small, smart, and easier for the patient to use.

syringeFor 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.
