The tube sensor is a 6-component force-torque sensor which can be integrated into any type of tube. Used in the fields of medicine as well as in biomechanics, this device measures the wrist effort during gripping task. This sensor allows directly acquiring the torque-effort components.
This gripping sensor can easily be integrated in sports or medical equipment like walkers, crutches or canes. With the location of the center of pressure this instrument is an essential measurement tool of muscular effort generated by the subject during the execution of a movement.
