LEAP Technology

LEAP Technology
Resilient mechanical sensor platform made only from sustainable silicone rubber. Measure forces and displacements without using metals or fossil fuel based polymers.

Using sustainable silicone rubber materials, LEAP Technology produce accurate and repeatable mechanical sensors without using metals or petroleum based polymers. This also makes LEAP sensors free from toxic materials both during manufacture and at end of life.
Not only are LEAP sensors challenging the way engineers think about mechanical sensing, their functionality also allows a wealth of applications to save energy. Predictive maintenance in structural monitoring applications, weight saving in mobile and aerospace applications and power saving in distributed sensor applications, making them ideal for use in connected devices and the Internet of Things. Unlike other sensor technologies, LEAP sensors are highly elastic and deformable, making them comfortable if part of a wearable device and especially valuable where circumference measurement is needed. This has huge opportunities to save resources in healthcare applications, reducing nurse visits and enabling patients to return home sooner after a hospital visit.
The basic sensor element measures stretch or displacement, but can be encapsulated and configured to respond to force or pressure. Whatever the configuration, the sensors are always made only from silicone rubber. This means that their sensors never have sliding seals or delicate metal parts making them inherently robust in aggressive mechanical environments.

LEAP Technology are looking for projects where elastic, resilient and robust mechanical sensing is required. LEAP Technology also like to collaborate with the right competences to create new ground breaking products taking advantage of the features of this new disruptive sensor technology.
