Abstract

Force sensing resistors (FSR) have been used to measure dynamic pressures at the interface between appliance and patient. Inaccuracies using FSRs: have been reported. This paper summarises both the calibration problems encountered and the techniques adopted to minimise inaccuracies. It is considered that, by calibrating the transducers attached to the socket, and by adopting a strict test protocol, FSRs may provide a guide to the dynamic pressure distribution applied to the trans-tibial stump during gait.
