Using 6-Axis hexapod Motion Platforms In Dental Research

As hexapod motion and positioning platforms become more mainstream technologies, their applications have expanded into medical fields such as dental biomechanics. The growth into these new dental applications and research requires a solution for the challenges in dealing with the combinations of small forces with large deflections, as well as large forces and extremely small deflections. In order to deal with this challenge, the HexMeS (Hexapod Measuring System) was designed. This article details the use of the HexMeS and highlights the key reasons for choosing hexapod motion systems in dental research applications.
