Forciot force measurement system offers innovative solution to optimize performance

Finnish technology company, Forciot, claims to achieve revolutionary results in precise real-time force and power measurement with its innovative force measurement technology. As a “World Cup” finalist, Forciot introduces stretchable electronics advanced solution that can be integrated into various products and equipment. Product consists of three major elements: force measurement sensors, cloud based software application to read and store data as well as product integration service for technical design.

The innovation has raised a lot of interest in European and Asia markets and this provides strong support for our goal to operate in global business. The CEO, Mrs. Maria Alm, attributes the company’s achievements to its professional workforce, their passion for work and strong demand for integrated IOT solutions.

“We had customers from the very first day of operations,” she says. “Due to our robust background in consumer electronics (such as Nokia and Microsoft), we had clear idea of what to do and what steps to take by joining forces with wearable electronics experts from Tampere University of Technology, who have researched the field for many years and agreed all together to bring that knowledge into our innovative solution.”

Mrs. Maria Alm points out that the Tampere region also gives a good starting platform for newly born company. Tampere, famous for technology start-ups, guaranteed great contacts to find support in specific needs beyond the company’s own expertise. Forciot co-operates with several other companies as well as research institutes like Tampere University of Technology, to boost innovation.

“The skills and competences one could find in Tampere both for consumer electronics and wearable technology are unique compared to any other region in Finland. So firstly, the workforce we have here we be difficult to build anywhere else and secondly Tampere provides amazing community to cooperate with,” Mrs. Alm explains.

There are several elements altogether that support company strategy to become globally operating technology provider for real time force measurement.

“I am proud to note that we are running several customer projects today,” she says.

“Going further, we have the intention to increase our visibility towards world leading manufacturers.”

Mrs. Alm highlights the uniqueness of their solution. She explains that their technology could be used by all those who are interested in force measurement for various purposes.

“As an example, force measurement sensors can be integrated into an insole or a shoe to provide real time data to users anywhere. This way we can help athletes to reduce the number of lab visits to test their force development; we help runners who need to know their performance; our insole solution will also benefit those patients suffering from injuries after an accident or operation to follow their result of recovering.

Our technology can be applied in a diverse selection of industries and other areas to maximize the benefits of real time force measurement; for instance, the automotive industry, logistics & transportation, and the fields of health and sport.” Mrs. Alm says.

Currently, the company operates mostly in Finland but plans to spread to globally. “We are also planning to create more open positions in Finland and abroad. We will certainly enrich our staff with more international experts and professionals as well,” she explains.

Forciot, as part of it objective to become global, is taking part in the “Traveling Sauna” campaign that is criss-crossing the USA this year to increase company recognition, promote Finland’s exports to United States. “It is great to be part of this campaign along with other innovative Finnish companies.” Mrs. Maria Alm says. “It is fun and a chance to meet new customers face to face and promote our innovation with them.”

EXPLANATION: The sensor technology measures the force and other parameters, and the cloud application software reports and stores the result for the user. Our expert team will help manufacturers to integrate the FORCIOT Measurement System into their products and equipment

PARTNERS: with several other companies and research institutes and universities.
