  • hand force measurement

    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
