A Pressure Sensing Conductive Polymer Composite with Carbon Nanotubes for Biomechanical Applications

Abstract:

Article Preview

A sensing element made of conductive composite created by an entangled network of electrically conductive carbon nanotubes embedded in polyurethane was used for simultaneous measurements of the pressure between the shoe and floor as well as the extension of the leg at the knee joint during marching. The results recorded as sensor resistance change show reasonable reversibility of the basic sensor characteristics, which gives potential for practical applications.
