Bite Force Measurement Study

Application Summary
Miniature Load Button Load Cells have been utilized in medical research studies by the University of Amsterdam to measure the bite strength of dementia patients.
Products in Use
Miniature Load Button Load Cell (LLB Series) paired with FUTEK's Handheld Digital Display (IHH500). View Product Details
Load Cell - Bite Force Measurement Study
How it Works
  1. Set up to measure the bite force of dementia patients, researchers at the University of Amsterdam installed FUTEK's Load Button Load Cell between the stainless steel plates of a probe.
  2. As the patient bites down onto the probe, the force applied is streamed directly to FUTEK's IHH500 Handheld Display where the researchers can monitor the data. If the researchers chooses to utilize FUTEK's SENSIT Test and Measurement Software alongside the Handheld Display, they will then have the ability to live graph and log all the data.
  3. We should note that FUTEK's Load Button Load Cells are intended for in-line (vertical) measurements.
