Hi, Everyone:



I am involved in an ergonomics study at the Center for Advanced Vehicular
Systems at Mississippi State University. The study requires us to measure
the forces applied by a factory worker to a glass sunroof of a car during
assembly. Normally, the worker need to press the glass into the place it
supposed to be. Some workers exert the force with their fingers, and some
use the palm, we want to get that force data. The workers wear the glove
during the task. Does any one have an idea about how to measure the forces
for both hands. Welcome any suggestions, comments and ideas you may have on
the approaches of this problem.



Thanks a lot
