Abstract

Abstract A large and low-cost pressure sensors technology based on flexible printing electronics for applications in neurorehabilatition scenarios is presented. An interactive real-time visualization of the center of gravity has been carried out successfully: response time lower than 1 millisecond and several pressure scales are monitorized and assigned to a range from a chromatic scale. The sensor configuration is formed by a 16x16 array with a resolution of 2 centimeter square of tactile unit and a total area of 45x45 cm2. The system is ready for real field validation in medical environment and a first prototype-demonstrator will be introduced in the market as a new competitive product due to its functionality and low-cost in relation to the actual systems available for this kind of applications.
