Yu-Te Wang, Yo Chen, Chien-Lu Tsai, Jia-Hao Chang

Abstract


The purpose of this study was to assess the accuracy of grip force sensors. Methods: Several standard weights were used to calibrate the grip sensor in the static condition, The descriptive statistics and linear regression were used to present the accuracy and errors. Results: Results of this study showed a high level of sensing areas linear relationship under static loading. Conclusion: Data from this study showed high accuracy of the pressure sensor. The pressure sensor could te used for hand grip measurement.
