Application of load cells in medical industry

Artificial Limbs

Artificial prosthetics have evolved over time and have improved in many aspects, from the comfort of materials to the integration of myoelectric control that utilizes electrical signals generated by the wearer’s own muscles. Modern artificial limbs are extremely lifelike in appearance, with pigments that match skin texture and details such as hair levels, fingernails and freckles.

Further improvements could come as advanced load cell sensors are integrated into artificial prosthetics. These improvements are designed to enhance the natural movement of artificial arms and legs, providing the correct amount of strength assistance during movement. Our solutions include load cells that can be built into artificial limbs and custom force sensors that measure the pressure of each movement of the patient to automatically change the resistance of the artificial limb. This feature allows patients to adapt and perform daily tasks in a more natural way.


A mammogram camera is used to scan the chest. The patient generally stands in front of the machine, and a professional will position the chest between the X-ray board and the base board. Mammography requires appropriate compression of the patient’s breasts to obtain a clear scan. Too little compression can result in suboptimal X-ray readings, which may require additional scans and more X-ray exposures; too much compression can result in a painful patient experience. Attaching a load cell to the top of the guide allows the machine to automatically compress and stop at the appropriate pressure level, ensuring good scanning and improving patient comfort and safety.

Infusion Pump

Infusion pumps are the most commonly used and essential tools in medical environments, capable of achieving flow rates from 0.01 mL/hr to 999 mL/hr.

Our custom solutions help reduce errors and achieve the goal of providing high-quality and safe patient care. Our solutions provide reliable feedback to the infusion pump, ensuring continuous and accurate dosing and fluid delivery to patients in a timely and accurate manner, reducing the supervisory workload of medical staff.

Baby Incubator
Rest and reduced exposure to germs are key factors in newborn care, so infant incubators are designed to protect delicate babies by providing a safe, stable environment. Incorporate load cells into the incubator to enable accurate real-time weight measurement without disturbing the baby’s rest or exposing the baby to the outside environment.
