Loomia Single Pressure Sensor

The Loomia Single Pressure Sensor gives you an analog read that maps to force on the sensor. The more you press, the lower the resistance goes, perfect for on-body pressure related sensing like ribcage expansion for breathing. This sensor is small but mighty, making it convenient for small surface area applications.

Loomia parts are designed to be easily soldered together, and work well with popular micro controllers like Arduino Nano and Teensy. The system revolves around Loomia's custom interconnect, which allows for a simple connection between buses. The interconnect can be soldered to headers for easy breadboarding. From fabric to wood, Loomia components can stick onto a range of materials, making your prototypes look clean and polished.

Note: There are a number of operating procedures to be aware of before using Loomia products. This includes directions to not wash or sew any of the parts. Make sure to check the Datasheet in the Documents tab for more information.
