Sensor Technology that Captures Patient’s Movement and Transferring the data
The Bending Sensor is a variable resistor that changes as it is bent. The sensor is a 9-axis movement & position sensor that consists of 3 acceleration channels, 3 angular rate channels and 3 magnetic field channels that measures wrist movements. They are connected to a computer system which can accurately compute the amount of individual finger movements.
