Muscle Fatigue Sensors

Request Number N781611
Need details

IncWell's partner seeks sensing technologies capable of detecting muscle fatigue in drivers.



Muscle fatigue is a key component of driver discomfort, centered on areas of the body in direct contact with the seating surface. Current sensors to measure muscle activity involve direct contact with the subject's skin, which is incompatible with a user-friendly driving experience.


IncWell's partner would like a sensor capable of identifying specific regions of the driver's body experiencing fatigue in a non-invasive, realtime manner.


Key Success Criteria

IncWell's partner is open to flexible or rigid sensors, depending on the distance required for measurements.


For solutions requiring less than 20mm to observe muscle fatigue, a thin (< 1mm), flexible sensor would be highly desirable whereas technology able to obtain measurements at distances greater than 20mm, a more rigid sensor could potentially be acceptable.


Possible Approaches

Non-invasive sensors to measure:

  • blood pressure
  • blood flow
  • muscle tension
  • other parameters indicative of muscle fatigue are also of interest
Approaches not of interest

Technologies that cannot be incorporated within a seating assembly in an automotive environment.


Preferred Collaboration types
  • To Be Negotiated
Items to be submitted

When responding to this request, please be sure to provide a non-confidential description of the technology you propose along with information regarding your alignment with the Key Success Criteria as well as your desired business relationship with IncWell's partner.
