Load Cells & Torque Sensors for Medical Application

Load cells and torque sensors for medical and physical therapy industries

Sensing Systems has been providing measurement products and services to the major companies in the medical components industry. We support the research, prototype, development and production phases of medical component design and testing. Our sensors measure the performance of the product and the various loads applied during testing.


We have designed and manufactured finger tip sensors used in bionic arms controlled by the human brain. These sensors restore the sense of touch to persons who have lost an arm. We have also designed and manufactured load cells to function underwater in warm saline solutions while monitoring the applied load to stents over a billion load cycles. We have supplied the data acquisition electronics to conduct the required tests and developed sensors to measure loads while conducting research in suturing techniques. We can install sensors and conduct load testing on prostheses and artificial limbs to determine the viability of a design and have designed and manufactured probes to measure the sensitivity of burned skin to very small loads.
