A modular six-directional force sensor for prosthetic assessment

There are many things about data, axis, actual force, prosthesis force sensor, strain, prosthetic fitting, output, sensor, socket, prosthetic fitting tool, beam, and technical note are presented in this paper. This paper gives you explanation around element, signal, data collection, measurement, device, length, force sensor, calibration testing, load, amputation, and voltages.

In this paper we can read things like output voltages, components, design, signal processing, fitting tool, channels, strain gages, force, prosthetic socket, calibration data, and applied loads. The following are selected from the paper:

A device designed to measure the forces and moments transmitted through prostheses of persons with lower limb amputation is presented . The sensing unit design is an advancement over previous prosthesis force measurement devices in that it is very thin (19 mm) and lightweight (527 .5 g, including signal-conditioning instrumentation) . The diskshaped transducer fits between the socket and socket adapter of a standard modular prosthesis, measuring all six force and moment components at this location . Twelve strain gages were used, configured into six two-arm active Wheatstone bridge circuits . A 6X6 matrix was constructed from calibration data to relate the 6-component bridge-output vector to a 6-component force and moment vector.

Giving more content, the paper gives you info such as instrumentation, signal conditioning, vector, errors, moments, signal conditioners, axial force, commercial load, foil strain gages, calibration, and finite element.
