Abstract

This paper sets out to investigate the characteristics of two relatively new sensors, the Flexpoint bend sensor® and the ionic polymeric metal composite (IPMC), for use outside of the clinical setting to monitor the activity of patients who have venous ulceration. Results from testing these sensors show that they achieve consistent results in tests over a range of frequencies, and therefore that it is possible to use them as motion detectors in human movement.
