MEMS Pressure sensor array

MEMS Pressure sensor array

MEMS Pressure sensor array

Can any one provide me information that might be useful in construction of a pressure sensor array. The array needs to be placed over the index finger to measure pressure due to holding of needle holder while doing surgery.

I guess this possibly can be done using MEMS technology. Any information is welcome.

RE: MEMS Pressure sensor array

Due to the fact that this sensor will be used between a surgeon and his tools, I would consult an ergonomist on this question.  I have put together a larger touch sensor in the past using silicon nitride diaphragms with polysilicon piezoresistors.

RE: MEMS Pressure sensor array

We are supplier of fiber optic mem pressure sensor.
We never did array of those as the cost for the final product would be very expensive. This being said, our technology using a light principle is very stable in temperature and more accurate the Mems with electrical array. For non sales advices, do not hesitate to contact me.
