FAQ's

  • What is the Enterprise Kit and how much does it cost?

    The Enterprise Kit is a large box of sensors ideal for companies that require a larger number of sensors for prototyping and evaluation of multiple sensor modes. We tailor the types and quantity of sensors in the Enterprise Kit to suit our customers depending on their specific industry. Accordingly, the price will vary depending on the contents of each Enterprise Kit.

  • What are the development kits for?

    Our development kits are for R&D engineers and product developers to discover new ways of utilizing our stretch sensing technology for smart clothing, sports and VR/AR applications. The kits contain a lot of sensors to enable rapid prototyping. Your design teams will have plenty of sensors to play with — twist them, stretch them, have fun! Get creative!

  • Why do I need a large number of sensors?

    We don't want your prototyping to be limited by the number of sensors included in the kit. Having more sensors offers more room for experimentation. You have the freedom to apply sensors to more than one project and share them with team members.

  • What are stretch sensors?

    StretchSense sensors are like smart rubber bands. They are flexible capacitors that are soft, stretchy and can easily be embedded into clothing or devices.

    Stretch sensors track how their geometry deforms as a measure of electrical capacitance. When they are attached correctly to a soft body of material — such as clothing or on a person’s body — the sensors provide precise information about how that object or person’s body is moving through the sensor’s geometry changes.

  • What can stretch sensors measure?

    By understanding a stretch sensor’s deformation, our customers are able to measure human body extension, bending, pressure and shear forces. This allows athletes to receive feedback on technique, consumers to interact with augmented reality devices in new ways and healthcare providers to track the recovery of their patients.

  • What is the price of sensors if I want to purchase in volume?

    Stretch sensors are made of low-cost materials so customers can enjoy economies of scale at mass production. We have three categories of production that signal large jumps in sensor price for our customers — labor-based, machine-based and commodity production. These categories occur at different volumes based on the specification and quantity.

  • Why are you supplying the 10-channel circuit with the kit?

    Each 10-channel circuit allows you to connect up to ten sensors at a time. Our 10-channel circuits turn the raw analog signal from the sensors into digital data you can use.

  • Can I make my own electronics?

    We advise integrating StretchSense circuitry into your own electronics to get the best results and save on development time.

  • What industries are currently using StretchSense?

    Our customer base spans a diverse range of industries. Some examples include wearables, sports and fitness, VR/AR, healthcare, rehabilitation, robotics, automotive, aerospace, fashion, music, movies and gaming.

    Our customers use our sensors to measure body motion, the interactions between humans and devices, and to measure subtle changes in soft industrial objects.
