Title: FLEXIBLE CONDUCTIVE APPARATUS AND SYSTEMS FOR DETECTING PRESSURE
Abstract:
A variable conductive apparatus responsive to an applied external force for use in a variable pressure sensor, monitoring system, or other devices. The variable conductive apparatus comprises a first conductive path that includes a first conductive surface; a second conductive path that includes a second conductive surface, a part of the second conductive surface having a conductive contact surface area with a part of the first conductive surface when there is no applied external force, another part of the second conductive surface separate from another part of the first conductive surface when there is no applied external force, wherein the applied external force increases conductive contact surface area between the first conductive surface and the second conductive surface and results in an increase in conductivity between the first conductive surface and the second conductive surface.
