StretchSense

StretchHEALTH Kit

$2940 USD

Our sensors are soft and flexible, and specifically designed for use on the human body. Compression sensors enable you to characterize the interface forces between the human body and other objects such as medical devices. Stretch sensors let you unobtrusively digitize body motion. Quantitative motion data lets you create applications that aid in monitoring for evaluation and recovery, and track and record aspects that are important to physical health and fitness such as activity levels, flexibility, and coordination.

This kit contains 4x Silicone Stretch Sensors, 4x Compression Sensors and 2x 10-channel SPI sensing circuits.

FAQ's

  • What is the StretchHEALTH kit?

    Our StretchHEALTH kit is a versatile kit for developing health wearable applications. It is the only kit that contains our soft compression sensors for measuring body-object interfaces. 

  • What are the development kits for?

    Our development kits are for R&D engineers and Product Developers to discover new ways of utilizing our stretch sensing technology for smart clothing, sports, and VR/AR applications. The kits contain lots of sensors to enable rapid prototyping. Your design teams will have plenty of sensors to play with. Twist them, stretch them, have fun! Get creative!

  • Why do I need a large number of sensors?

    We don't want your prototyping to be limited by the number of sensors included in the kit. Having more sensors offer more room for experimentation. You have the freedom to apply sensors to more than one project and share them with team members.

  • What is the Enterprise Kit and how much does it cost?

    The Enterprise Kit is a large box of sensors ideal for companies that require a larger number of sensors for prototyping and evaluation of multiple sensor modes. We tailor the types and quantity of sensors in the Enterprise Kit to suit our customers depending on their specific industry. Accordingly, the price will vary depending on the contents of each Enterprise Kit.

  • What are stretch sensors?

    StretchSense sensors are like smart rubber bands. They are flexible capacitors which are soft, stretchy and can easily be embedded into clothing or devices.

    Stretch sensors measure how their geometry deforms as a measure of electrical capacitance. When they are attached correctly to a soft body of material, such as clothing or on a person’s body, the sensors provide precise information about how that object or person’s body is moving through the sensor’s geometry changes.

  • What can stretch sensors measure?

    By understanding a stretch sensor’s deformation, our customers are able to measure human body extension, bending, pressure and shear forces. This allows athletes to receive feedback on technique, consumers to interact in new ways with augmented reality devices and for healthcare providers to track the recovery of their patients.

  • What is the difference between your fabric and silicone sensor products?

    Both our silicone and fabric sensors are suitable for a wide range of applications, but each sensor type is particularly suited for certain applications.

    Our silicone sensors are useful for medical applications where they need to be pressed up against the skin, or in applications where they are adhered directly to or integrated into rubber-like materials. Our fabric sensors are ideal for wearable applications where the sensors are sewn into garments.
