Customized Sensing Solutions

The FlexSense Development Team is a group of scientists and engineers-material, electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, and quality, who are aligned on a common goal of delivering customized sensing solutions to our partners.

How Does FlexSense Work?

FlexSense Sensors are made of an electroactive polymer that acts as a displacement to capacitance transducer. As the dielectric film is strained, it thins and expands in area, increasing its capacitance, which increases its energy capacity in just milliseconds.
