Load Cell

Precision sensor for handgrip, traction, and other heavy-duty force sensing applications.

The biosignalsplux Load Cell is a single-axis force sensor designed for continuous force measurements in biomechanics, rehabilitation, ergonomics, and sports research applications.

Its sturdy design and small form-factor are ideal for measuring handgrip forces, traction/compression and similar applications, will enabling an unobtrusive measurement even in the most demanding applications. Together with the available Load Cell range options and accessories, this sensor can be adjusted during the manufacturing process to meet application-specific force range and form-factor requirements.
