Hello Biomch-L:

We are trying to determine if there are any commercially available
telemetric load cells. We know the technology has been used to measure in
vivo hip and spinal loads but have not been able to locate any commercially
available and non-implantable load cells. We hope to use the load cells to
measure forces "wirelessly" in ergonomic or materials handling situations.

If anyone knows of a supplier for these devices could you please email me
the appropriate information? I will post a summary of replies if I receive any.

Thanks in advance.
