Foot pressure mapping or plantar foot pressure map is important in gait and posture research for studying lower limb issues, footwear design, sports performance analysis, etc. The foot pressure mapping systems available on the market are too expensive. More seriously, it is very hard to develop a custom system with traditional foot pressure mapping systems mainly due to their closed source policy.
For this reasons, Kitronyx offers two foot pressure mapping hardware development kit (HDK) MP2505 and MP2506.
MP2505 is a high resolution plantar foot pressure mapping system which is suitable for researchers and engineers in organizations. On the other hand, MP2506 is a budget foot pressure mapping system and offers sufficient performance for general foot pressure mapping applications.
This two are designed to work as a base platform to build a complete foot pressure mapping system with very easy to use open source APIs.
MP2505 High Resolution Foot Pressure Mapping HDK
Customers in academic or research institution can check out MP2505 Academic Edition.
MP2505 is a Hardware Development Kit (HDK) to help you build your own foot pressure mapping system.
This HDK contains:
Compared with buying each item separately, you will get 10% off discount by purchasing this kit
MP2506 Low Resolution Foot Pressure Mapping System HDK
MP2506 is a Hardware Development Kit (HDK) to help you build your own foot pressure mapping system.
This product is carefully designed for researcher and engineers who needs foot pressure mapping sensor, electronics, and SDK but suffer from limited budget.
This HDK contains:
Snowboard Starter Kit 2 is our new line of HDK that includes two FSR matrix sensors and Snowboard controller. Most of all, this kit contains a larger sensor MS9724 (128 x 80mm active sensing area) so it can be used for wider range of applications.
MA1009 extension cable system is designed for MC1509 force controller. MA1009 has 700mm length cable so a sensor can be placed away from MC1509 controller which help you measure pressure or touch in distance.
We've been silent for a long time but it does not mean that we're away from you.
Today, we are very happy to announce new sensors for Snowboard - MS9723 and MS9724. Both of them has improved tails so that a user can conveniently handle our sensors. Especially MS9724 is our first "big" sensor solely designed for Snowboard and it will enlarge applications of Snowboard.
MS9723 FSR Matrix Array Sensor (16x10 Rows and Columns / 80mm x 50mm Active Sensing Area)
80.0 x 50.0m (mm) active sensing area matrix sensor with 16x10 electrodes and 160 sensing locations.
MS9724 FSR Matrix Array Sensor (16x10 Rows and Columns / 128mm x 80mm Active Sensing Area)
128.0 x 80.0m (mm) active sensing area matrix sensor with 16x10 electrodes and 160 sensing locations.
Since we adopt FPC cable for tails of our new sensors, MA9723C01 is newly designed to interface these new sensors and Snowboard.
We devloped insole type matrix pressure sensors that can be compatible with Snowboard. It has more than a hundred sensing nodes so very precise foot pressure mapping can be obtained. Enjoy!
.We are happy to introduce a new product CDZB-23CP zebra conductive fabric.
This fabric has separated areas of conductivity. This property is useful to have when looking to make interesting sensing projects.
Please take a look at our latest product brochure.
In this post, we share our new sensors - very fine pitch sensors. Kitronyx MC1509 and a new super multi-channel controllers are used to measure pressure data from these fine pitch pressure sensors.
This demo shows pressure data while a user is writing on Kitronyx force pressure touch sensor.
Kitronyx is an engineering company that provides development tools and engineering design services to individuals, companies, universities and government agencies based on expertise in force, pressure, and multi-touch technologies. Our focus is on providing the ‘closest to complete’ technology to enable customers to rapidly turn ideas into real products.
MC1509 is a force touch controller that is designed for easy development of pressure mapping application. Kitronyx supplies compatible matrix array sensors (MS9705, MS9712, MS9711) as well. The combination of these components can be regarded as pressure mapping HDK (Hardware Development Kit) and is the perfect tool to evaluate Kitronyx force pressure sensing technologies. In addition, carefully designed SDK makes our solution suitable for anyone who wants to develop his/her own pressure mapping applications.
In this post, we shows one possible application of MC1509 and MS9705 - tire pressure mapping.
In the video below, our products are used to capture tire footprint pressure patterns. Dynamic and static tire footprints are measured and displayed by using MC1509 force controller and MS9705 FSR matrix sensor.
