Pressure Mapping, Force Measurement & Tactile Sensors

Tekscan's sensors and systems provide critical force and pressure data in various environments including research and development, quality assurance, and testing as well as human and animal health care & research settings worldwide.

Pressure Mapping Systems

Tekscan’s complete pressure mapping systems consist of sensors, data acquisition electronics, and software which runs directly on your laptop or desktop PC. With various options for sensor models and software add-ons, we provide solutions to upgrade your system as your needs evolve.

General Purpose System

The general purpose pressure mapping system measures interface pressure between two surfaces, utilizing a thin and flexible sensor. With many options for sensors and data acquisition electronics, the system is a modular toolkit for a variety of pressure mapping applications.

  • Map interface pressure
  • Analysis tools provide insights for a better understanding of surface behavior
  • Versatile research toolkit (configurable sensors, electronics, software)
