Hi All, I'm trying to design an experiment for measuring force along a cable. The cable is will be held in a persons hand and the other end will be fixed to a transducer to measure the force of tension. In order to account for the multiple force vectors, I thought of using a gimbal table or platform to ensure that the force sensor is able to reliably measure the majority of the force vectors and minimize any forces orthogonal to the plane of the sensor. These may be significant given the high degrees of freedom from a human hand tethered to the other end of the cable. The sensor I'm thinking of using is this one: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12873. The force applied should not exceed 50N. Other than a gimbal table, are there any other methods available for reliably measuring the tension force along the cable using a unidirectional force sensor?
