Research Institution
A Combat Load Assessment Device (CLAD)has been proposed based on BH Technology's Flexivibe load cell technology. The resulting scale and hand held controller are lightweight, rugged, low cost, high impact resistant and have an accuracy of 1 part in 10,000. The CLAD measures both height and weight of the individual soldier. The flexivibe load cell senses the deflection of the load cell body due to applied weight rather than the induced stress/strain and therefore does not have the restrictions and engineering compromises that accompany strain gauge load cell design.
