For technical reasons, measuring movement during functional magnetic resonance imaging can be challenging.  NIS addresses this challenge by producing world-class fiber optic force transducers coupled with a complete data acquisition solution for measuring forces produced inside the MRI scanning environment.




Here are some important details:

  • All fiber optic sensors are hand-crafted using state-of-the-art fiber bragg grating technology
  • Calibrated and linear in range
  • Sensors are available in 700N, 150N, 50N, and 1N range
  • Precisely measure isometric force contractions inside and outside of the MRI and MEG environment
  • No interference on MRI and MEG signals
  • Rugged housings protect and temperature insulate each sensor
  • Upper and lower limb applications

Customers are already raving about the timely support and quality product, opening several possibilities for research into sensorimotor control.  Precise measurement of force is just not available anywhere else using MRI compatible sensors.
