Concept Project for measuring the amount of pressure applied to a site. For use in Healthcare Simulation Training. Using a Force Sensitive Resistor (FSR) placed under fake skin created with “Smooth-On”, we are able to estimate the pounds of pressure applied.
Although the sensor can only detect pressure to approximately 20 lbs which isn’t high enough when detecting pressure applied for artery bleeding stoppage. This concept testing showcases how Arduino boards can create new healthcare simulation trainers.
Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
