What if you could additionally equip an endoscope with a sense of touch? Sounds like a dream of some far-off future? But it is not. Installed in a rigid endoscope, the duo s-Force registers even the smallest touches and warns surgeons against injuring tissues or even vital organs. In addition to the associated optical control, doctors now also have the sensitivity of their hands inside the human body at their disposal.

The duo s-Force platform is a miniaturised sensor for weight and force measurement. Its high sensitivity results from the piezoresistivity — i.e. the measurement of force and pressure by means of a strain gauge. In addition to its unique sensitivity, it is characterised by a particularly good signal quality. It can be over-moulded in a media-resistant manner, is stable over the long term and can also be automated in large series and thus produced very inexpensively.


Advantages of the duo s-Force Sensor:

  • Up to 40 times more sensitive than conventional strain gauges
  • Virtually fatigue- and creep-free due to glass frit bonding
  • Submillimetre dimension of the sensor element
  • Customer-specific integration of force or pressure measurement
  • Compatible with harsh environments (e.g. IP68/IP69K, -40°C...+125°C)
