Title:
Transparent biocompatible sensor patches for touch sensitive prosthetic limbs
Authors:
Nag, Anindya; Mukhopadhyay, Subhas; Kosel, Jürgen ( 0000-0002-8998-8275 )
Abstract:
The paper presents the fabrication of transparent, flexible sensor patches developed using a casting technique with polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as substrate and a nanocomposite of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and PDMS as interdigital electrodes. The electrodes act as strain sensitive capacitor. The prototypes were used as touch sensitive sensors attached to the limbs. Experiments results show the sensitivity of the patches towards tactile sensing. The results are very promising and can play a key role in the development of a cost efficient sensing system attached to prosthetic limbs.
