  • Force transducer recommendations

    Hi all

    I've just started working on a project that is looking at priming
    movement parameters such as force and amplitude. I need to source a
    decent force transducer, something suitable for doing grip force
    measurements over a range of approximately 0-1500N (give or take -
    we'll need to be able to measure a maximum voluntary contraction but
    mostly will be looking to accurately measure attempts to produce, say
    5 or 25% of that).

    I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on good systems? We're thinking
    about full on, 6D sensors as well as just a 1D sensor - the latter are
    cheap and would do the trick for the current study but the former are
    likely to come in handy later, so while we have a few money
    constraints if we can find a decently priced system we have some

    Any advice would be gratefully received!
