  • Waterproof load cell and pressure sensor

    Dear Biomech-l participants,

    I am seeking for the waterproof one-component force transducer and the
    waterproof pressure sensor for open water sports measurement. We have our
    own portable data logger system (8 channels) to collect analog signal from
    the sensors. We need the waterproof sensor because the whole measuring
    system (sensors and data logger) may submerge into the water during the
    measurement. We would like to use the waterproof sensors on rowing (insole
    pressure), fin-swimming (insole pressure), sailing (tension and insole
    pressure) or wind surfing (insole pressure and tension).

    I did find some waterproof force platforms but it is difficult to find the
    waterproof force and pressure sensor. Several of pressure sensor systems,
    such as Pedar, F-scan or Footscan, are not waterproof and can't be used
    with our own data logger system. Does anyone have idea or information on
    the waterproof force sensor and the pressure sensor in such situation? Any
    comments or information are welcome.

    Thank you,
