After spending several days with the Tekscan pressure system, I am
somehow sceptical about the capabilities of the system. Our original
euphoria to use this equipment to measure absolut pressures and
pressure distribution between two deformable medias/surfaces is over
now and we are just at the beginning of a long learning curve regarding
sensor calibration, best sensor shape (no bending influence on pressure
output), interpreting the huge data output and many other things. I
realised that this equipment has been successfully used in the past to
determne pressures, where the sensor is placed between a deformable and
a more or less nondeformable surface.
Does anyone has some experience in the area described above?
Has anyone ever quantyfied the influence of the sensor bending to the
pressure output?
