Stretch Sensors (Resistors)

A stretch sensor is a cylindrical cord which can be stretched to achieve varying resistances. It’s a sort of variable resistor where the resistance can be adjusted by the intensity of the stretch. Usually when the sensor is stretched by 50% it reaches double it’s initial resistance.

Some stretch sensor applications:

  1. Various stress measuring.
  2. Physics experiments.
  3. Could be used in robotics.
  4. VR suits/gloves.
  5. Biometric displacement reading.
  6. Feedback sensor for air muscles.
