Electromechanical Sensors

Resonetics designs and manufactures custom electromechanical sensors to collect critical procedure data, like strain and temperature, in medtech applications. Our electromechanical sensors have a small footprint, making them ideal for integration into devices and implants used in minimally invasive surgery. The sensors also have minimal electromagnetic emissions and low susceptibility to radiofrequency fields.

Starting with the data that needs to be collected by your device, the engineers in our Lightspeed Lab can design and develop a custom electromechanical sensor for your application. Our team can also support the integration of the sensor in your device and the development of testing protocols. We provide the sensors as a standalone product or as part of an integrated subassembly or finished device. Our enhanced capabilities, innovative thinking, and modern sensor assemblies will help you develop groundbreaking medical technology and improve patient outcomes.
