Abstract

The design, fabrication and testing of wearable sensing system for medical application is described. The rehabilitation of neurologic patients is improved by using electronic supports able to measure physical parameters. The fingertips force is one of the relevant variables and it is measured here with electronic glove with low-sized sensors with modified interface. The electronic circuit has been miniaturized and packaged on the backside of the hand.
