Adapting loads cells from bathroom scales
I want to make some small slim pads to measure the pressure beneath several wraps of 6mm rope placed against the skin - don't ask ;-). My raw materials are the load cells and electronics from some electronic scales like these
. They have 4 loads cells that look like this
The problem is they are in those oval plastic boxes you can see at each corner of the scales so are too bulky. My question is how to repackage the load cells so they will still work but be thin and comfortable?
