A tri-axial sensor for measuring the forces of a skier
Companies and researchers are working on skis, ski bindings and ski boots to optimize the transfer of force from the athlete to the ski. But how can the force transferred from a skier to the skis actually be measured?
An article published on our web site in 2002 discusses that question. This article describes the development of a new tri-axial transducer for measuring these forces.
In this case as well, strain gauges from HBM played a decisive role.
