Description

- Strain Gage Techniques

Enquiries for measuring tasks in industrial environment are welcome. Modern measuring know-how can be offered. We are prepared to do synchronous measuring of 360 grids with our own tools.

- Development of biaxial and triaxial force-transducers without interference.
We are searching for shapes of transducers which are free of interference between force axis. This is to avoid the measuring of the coefficients of the interference matrix.

Development of new shapes for torque-transducers.

It is becoming much more important to measure torque in machine sets for controling and as a safety device. So new shapes of torque-springs must be found to design stiff and lugly sensitive torque-transducers.

- Torque and bending measuring of heart-catheters.

This project is a cooperation of engineers and clinical medicine. It is essential to find new shapes and materials to increase the controllability of catheters in coronary angiography and to decrease the resistance to rotation in the aortic arch, for example.

- Measuring techniques to test endothel behaviour near rupturing ballons.

- Does radiation prevent re-narrowing of nenels?

To follow a US-study, only 16,7% of a radiation treated group experienced restenosis vs. 53,6% of the individuals who did not receive radiation. A special wireless measuring technique is developed to measure the behaviour of cells near stents with and without radiation by iridium-192.
