This paper presents the development of a flexible force sensor that can be integrated on a catheter and provide catheter contact force to ensure sufficient power delivery during during RF ablation for atrial fibrillation treatment. The flexible force sensor consists of a strain gauge (PEDOT:PSS) incorporated on a polymer substrate (PDMS) and was fabricated… CONTINUE READING
