ADVANCED FINGER AND HAND PRESSURE MEASUREMENT FingerTPSII systems are used in a wide-range of applications including ergonomics, medical, consumer product design, and robotics.
Product designers use the FingerTPS II sensors to measure finger or grasp forces in activities like squeezing and opening bottles, or operating hand tools and machinery. Medical practitioners use the system to study chiropractic and massage therapy techniques, as well as finger/hand pressures applied during surgical procedures. FingerTPS II customers use collected data to analyze and improve techniques and/or designs for their applications.
FINGERTPS II SYSTEM ENHANCEMENTS
New Sensor Materials and Construction for better fit, comfort, and improved data collection
New Algorithms and Reference Sensor streamlines and simplifies the calibration process
New Encasing and Stand system for better sensor protection and storage
New Full Tactile Glove configuration option available
Faster and Easier Installation and Set-Up
The newly advanced FingerTPS II™(Tactile Pressure Sensing) utilizes highly sensitive capacitive-based pressure sensors to reliably quantify forces applied by the human hand. It's the only practical and comfortable sensor solution that also connects wirelessly to your PC.
Watch CEO, Jae Son introduce the improvements of FingerTPS II:
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Comfortable tactile sensors for human hands
User Configurablewith up to 6capacitive sensors per hand
Video recording, editing, and playback synchronized with tactile data
Wireless Bluetooth connectivity allows user mobility and freedom
Simple Calibrationprocedure using a PPS reference sensor
API available for custom configuration and system integration
With our powerful Chameleon TVR 2012Software, FingerTPS II systems can be easily reconfigured and recalibrated for different uses of the hands on the fly.
FingerTPS II systems also include synchronized video recording to match tactile data with actual use. Precise force data and video images can be captured and displayed in real-time via PPS's Chameleon TVR 2012 Software, which has Tivo®-like versatility in recording time-series, average and peak force measurements.
Watch CTO, David Ables introduce the entire system and how it works:
Each FingerTPS II system supports two hands with up to 6 sensors per hand. The sensors are made from a soft, conductive Lycra® that conforms to the finger to allow dextrous operations and are held in place by soft silicone grips. The wireless interface module can be recharged using a USB port and runs continuously for over 2 hours.
Chameleon TVR 2012 (Tactile Visualization and Recording Software)
The new ChameleonTVR™ 2012 (Tactile Visualization and Recording Software) offers real-time visualization, analysis, and playback of your FingerTPS II data. Chameleon TVR 2012 allows you to collect and view video and FingerTPS II data simultaneously.
With Chameleon TVR 2012, configuration and calibration FingerTPS II system of your is a breeze. Simply indicate where the sensors are on the hand and press once on the included electronic reference sensor. There's no need to remember which channels are active or in what order the sensors were connected. Chameleon TVR 2012 tracks it all for you, and you're setup and calibrated in minutes.
Once you are collecting data, you can view selected sensors on the strip chart display. Digital displays show the real-time, time-averaged, or maximum values for all connected sensors, plus the total and peak force for each hand. At any time, you are free to change the units for display and export.
