Tongue force Calculation using FSR
The Tongue Force Calculation using Force-Sensing Resistors (FSR) project aims to develop a system that can accurately measure and quantify the forces exerted by the tongue during various activities. The tongue is a critical muscular organ involved in essential functions such as speech, swallowing, and taste perception. Understanding the forces exerted by the tongue can provide valuable insights into assessing and rehabilitating individuals with speech and swallowing disorders.

The Tongue Swallowing Force Calculation using FSR and LCD Project focuses on the development of a device that can quantitatively measure tongue force and provide immediate visual feedback. The system utilizes Force-Sensing Resistors (FSRs), which are pressure-sensitive sensors capable of detecting changes in force applied to their surface. An FSR is placed on a small platform or handle, designed to be held by the user.
When a person exerts tongue force by swallowing pressing their tongue against the FSR, the sensor registers the applied force as a change in resistance. This analog signal is then converted into a digital signal using an analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The microcontroller, such as Arduino, processes the digital signal and calculates the tongue force based on a predetermined calibration curve obtained during the sensor calibration stage. We can also use Webserver IOT based for showing its value.
To provide immediate feedback to the user, the system incorporates a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). The calculated tongue force is displayed in real-time on the LCD screen, allowing the user to monitor their tongue force levels during various exercises or tasks
