IUPUI entrepreneurs seek to quantify pressure applied during manual therapy

(Indiana University) Researcher-entrepreneurs Terry Loghmani, Sohel Anwar and Stanley Chien of IUPUI have developed an instrument system called Quantifiable Soft Tissue Manipulation. QSTM integrates an accelerometer, force sensors, a gyroscope and software to compute the force and motion parameters during manual therapy to treat soft-tissue injuries. The information can be displayed on a laptop computer or a tablet for real-time monitoring and recording of relevant data.
