Capacitive sensing of interfacial forces in prosthesis

Abstract

In this paper, we present a capacitive sensor that measures the interfacial forces in prosthesis. The sensor's design, transfer function and performance metrics are tested and discussed. The sensor is uniquely able to measure both shear and normal stress simultaneously.
