View Full Version : 3-D force transducer

Dear Colleagues,

In our group we study masticatory function. One of the aspects we measure
isometric bite force.
So far we measured bite force with a 1 dimensional force transducer.
However, we would like to measure the bite force 3 dimensionally.
So we are looking for a 3-D force transducer.
As the force transducer is used in the mouth (between the molars)
it should be as small as possible.

My question:

Does anybody have information on small 3-D force transducers?

With kind regards,

Andries van der Bilt
