Evaluation of Flexible Force Sensors for Pressure Monitoring in Treatment of Chronic Venous Disorders

  title={Evaluation of Flexible Force Sensors for Pressure Monitoring in Treatment of Chronic Venous Disorders},
  author={Suresh Parmar and Iryna E. Khodasevych and Olga Troynikov},
The recent use of graduated compression therapy for treatment of chronic venous disorders such as leg ulcers and oedema has led to considerable research interest in flexible and low-cost force sensors. Properly applied low pressure during compression therapy can substantially improve the treatment of chronic venous disorders. However, achievement of the recommended low pressure levels and its accurate determination in real-life conditions is still a challenge. Several thin and flexible force… CONTINUE READING
