Measuring the three-dimensional (3D) force-moment (F/M) systems applied for correcting tooth malposition is highly desirable for accurate spatial control of tooth movement and for reducing traumatic side effects such as irreversible root resorption. To date, suitable tools for monitoring the applied F/M system during therapy are lacking. We have previously(More)
We present a torsional bridge setup for the electro-mechanical characterization of devices integrated in the surface of silicon beams under mechanical in-plane shear stress. It is based on the application of a torsional moment to the longitudinal axis of the silicon beams, which results in a homogeneous in-plane shear stress in the beam surface. The safely(More)
