I’m working on a design project for school, and this is something that we’d like to know. I’ve tried literature searches, but this doesn’t seem to be a pressing (no pun intended) topic on the research front.
I’ve tried calling surgical instrument manufacturers, but I keep getting sales reps, and they’re no help (no offense intended to any Dopers who may be sales reps).
Our group is working on building a sensor to make the measurements ourselves, but none of us is an instrumentation wiz. So, can anyone in the medical business point me in the right direction?
