A medical company wants a force measurement system for their experimental rehabilitation treadmill for patients that have pelvic mobility difficulties. For example, patients who have had a strokes tend to have difficulty walking. They want to measure the forces applied on the pelvis when the patient is walking on the treadmill and catch any pelvic deviations.
The rehabilitation treadmill has a special harness with two actuators on either side of the patient when in use. Interface suggests installing their Two WMC Sealed Stainless Steel Miniature Load Cells to the actuators, which will measure the forces applied on the pelvis of the patient. Force results can be measured using the SI-USB4 4-Channel USB Interface Module, which can also be graphed and logged on the customer’s computer with supplied VS3 software.
The medical company was able to catch different pelvic deviations in their experimental rehabilitation treadmill using Interface’s force measurement system.
