2.2″ Flex Sensor Bend Detection Sensor


A simple Flex Sensor 2.2″ – Bend Sensor with a length of 2.2″ which bends and flexes with a physical device. As the sensor is flexed, the resistance across the sensor increases. A connector is 0.1″ spaced and breadboard friendly. Applications in – Robotics, Gaming (Virtual Motion), Medical Devices, Computer Peripherals, Musical Instruments, and Physical Therapy. hallroad.org

The flex sensor is a bend-detecting sensor that has got numerous applications in robotics, medical and haptic technology. The resistance of these sensors changes in accordance with the bend, which can be measured using any microcontroller.
