Ergonomic Headphones Assessment

Optimize product design and comfort of headphones by measuring pressure distribution.

Headphones Comfort Design Using Pressure Distribution

Designing comfortable fitting headphones can be a difficult task. Product design engineers must be able to design a product that is comfortable across a vast population of people, while keeping manufacturing costs low.
The I-Scan™ pressure mapping system offers a means to quantify the ergonomics of various headphone designs and objectively compare designs across customers, as well as perform comparative testing between products and competitor’s products. I-Scan provides data in real-time and 2D or 3D pressure displays. Areas experiencing high pressures can easily be identified, compared and adjusted thus saving time in design verification and re-engineering costs. Sensors are available in different shapes and pressure ranges, are reusable, and provide accurate pressure data. With the help of Tekscan’s highly qualified sales and engineering support team, each system can be configured to meet your specific needs.
