Cooper Instruments offers load cells for a variety of medical applications where there is a need to measure force. We offer many products for medical use, including some with internal overload protection to protect against accidental shock loads. The model LFS 270 and LFS 242 are two such popular products. The overload protection is provided without the use of any moving parts or adjustments. Other load cells used in medical applications include the LPM 510, LPM 512, LPM 530 and LQB 630. All of these products have a small size configuration but a wide choice of force ranges. Cooper Instruments also offers an ergonomics testing kit to perform a wide array of ergonomic studies, such as MK series.
The following are just a few examples of medical applications.
