Fundamentals Of Strain Gauge Sensors
Short History of SGS
The theoretical foundation for Strain Gauge Sensors was already laid in 1856, when Lord Kelvin discovered the phenomena of the piezoresistence effect. In 1954 Smith established then the physical relationship between resistance and stress with a silicon and germanium structure (source: http://cdn.intechopen.com/pdfs-wm/6124.pdf).
Soft Body Dynamics (SBD)
What is Soft Body Dynamics short SBD?
Soft Body Dynamics is a term that is well established in the field of computer graphics and was first used in 1985. SBD summarises the complex properties and behaviour of deformable objects (soft bodies) such as the change of shape in motion and its realistic emulation/simulation.
The great unknown
A large part of the population does not know their blood pressure, in contrast to weight, height, and perhaps even pulse. This ignorance can have fatal consequences, because high blood pressure is the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes. Approximately one fifth of the world's population now has no normal blood pressure values.
Vital Function Monitoring
A short description?
For that purpose, the definition of The Cleveland Clinic gives a comprehensible overview.
“Vital signs are used to measure the body's basic functions.
