Gradient compression garments are widely used in medicine (for embolism prevention and burns recovery) and in sports clothing, but their efficacy has not been rigorously scrutinised. This lack of information is due partly to the absence of a suitable pressure sensing system, capable of reliably mapping the low pressures exerted by such clothing, whilst being practical enough (i.e. low-cost, flexible, small, with minimal wiring) to be used in clinical or sporting environment.

The ideal candidate will join the team of the Principal Investigator working in the design and fabrication of MEMS and embedment of nanomaterials into MEMS. The primary focus of the project is to design and develop fabrication processes to make force sensor and test its performance. The successful candidate will also perform finite element analysis for optimizing the sensor’s design.
