Glove Pressure Mapping System

The Glove Pressure Mapping System (GPMS) is a multi-sensor hand force data acquisition system that consists of multiple sensors that can be mounted on a glove (or an object) and connects to a PC's USB port or can operate wirelessly. The GPMS can be ordered in various configurations of 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 sensors. The sensor locations can easily be modified by the customer and are mounted using double-sided tapes. The individual sensors are covered with a Teflon coated laminate which makes them more durable. A set of three gloves (3 sizes S, M, and L) with a roll of 2-sided tape is included.

The GPMS has various ergonomics applications including hand-tool analysis, design and research, as well as clinical applications.

Sensors can be calibrated by the customer to 30 psi using the mini high-pressure calibration jig. They can also be calibrated to 60, 100 and 200 psi at the factory. The variation coefficient (which is the standard deviation expressed as a percentage) is within acceptable quality control range of ±10%.

*Variation Coefficient is the Standard Deviation expressed as a percentage.

Additional Hardware:

A calibration jig (normally high pressure) is suggested.
