The Tactilus Human Body Interface sensor system is designed to allow the user to collect pressure, magnitude and distribution data from selected locations across the human body.

Tactilus Technology: Tactilus allows the user to capture and record pressure conditions occurring in between any two contacting or impacting surfaces in real time. The paper-thin Tactilus sensor is actually placed at the contact interface where it records and assimilates both pressure distribution and pressure magnitude on your Windows based computer. Physical human interface is every bit as important as graphical computer interfaces, but the world hasn't invested in analysis and research in these areas commensurate with the opportunity at stake. Tactilus allows the flexibility of recording human interface pressure from multiple regions simultaneously. Tactilus Human Body Interface sensor system is the most economical, scientific and user-friendly system for surface pressure mapping available today. Bringing human factors and ergonomic engineering to a new level, Tactilus aids the test or design engineer in optimizing the tradeoff often made between performance and comfort.

What it does: Tactilus allows the user to capture and record pressure conditions occurring in between any two contacting or impacting surfaces in real time. The paper-thin Tactilus sensor is actually placed at the contact interface where it records and assimilates both pressure distribution and pressure magnitude on your Windows based computer.

The Innovation: Exciting advancements in conductive textiles have allowed us to develop a sensor that conforms better to your surface than ever before. Not only does the sensor conform better to curved surfaces but it stretches to alleviate shearing affects caused by shifting contact surfaces - an innovation that no other sensor company can touch! By biomimicking human skin we've taken surface contact pressure measurement to a whole new level.

The Tactilus sensor consists of a series of interlaced lines that create a matrix with as many as 16,384 individual sensing points. Tactilus Windows based software communicates with the sensor up to a theoretical 1,000 frames per second - fast enough for impact force measurement. For users desiring direct interfacing with their own control software Sensor Products can supply an API.

"The speed and size of this product has allowed us to create a truly differentiated product in our market. I think the bottom line is that you delivered and you and your team should be commended for your efforts and innovation." ~Ron Douthit, Vertex Golf
