SensAble Technologies公司成立于1993年，是3D可触摸（力反馈）解决方案和技术领域中的领先开发商，其解决方案和技术不仅使用户能够看到并听到屏幕计算机应用，还可以对该应用进行实际“感应”。SensAble公司从二十世纪九十年代由行业先锋Thomas Massie 和 Kenneth Salisbury博士在麻省理工学院建成的大学研究部门演化而来。SensAble Technologies公司目前已拥有32项专利许可和6000多个安装在世界各地的系统，其触觉技术广泛应用于诸多领域，包括外科手术模拟和中风康复、义齿整形、设计玩具和鞋类，以及研究和机器人应用领域。此外，公司将其自身研发的3D建模解决方案、触觉设施和开发者工具包应用于医疗、牙科、设计和生产公司，以及教育和研究机构等。
SensAble 公司于2007年创建了SensAble Dental子公司，致力于牙科行业中的集成式数字化解决方案。
Founded in 1993, SensAble Technologies is a leading developer of 3D touch-enabled (force feedback) solutions and technology that allow users to not only see and hear an on-screen computer application, but to actually 'feel' it.?The company evolved from undergraduate research done at MIT in the 1990s by industry pioneers Thomas Massie and Dr. Kenneth Salisbury. With 32 patents granted and over 6,000 systems installed worldwide, SensAble Technologies' haptic technology is being used in applications ranging from surgical simulation and stroke rehabilitation, to dental restorations, to designing toys and footwear; as well as a range of research and robotic applications.
The company markets its own 3D modeling solutions as well as its haptic devices and developer toolkits to medical, dental, design, and manufacturing companies; educational and research institutions; and OEMs.?
In 2007, the company created the SensAble Dental division, focused on delivering integrated digital solutions for the dental industry.
Manufacturers seeking to shorten time to market through haptically-enabled product design and manufacturing processes;
The commercialization of medical and dental products incorporating haptics, such as surgical planning, simulation and training, and 3D modeling for patient-specific implants and prosthetics;
University research centers and projects that incorporate haptic feedback into an increasingly broad range of applications.
As haptics comes of age, SensAble's expanded market presence is being driven by simultaneous trends of:
The company was founded in 1969 by Bill Polhemus in Grand Rapids, MI. In early 1971 Polhemus moved to the Burlington, VT area. Polhemus has been developing 3D tracking solutions for over 30 years. We have an ongoing commitment to delivering the best solutions. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality 3D motion tracking systems for motion capture, scanning and overall tracking applications.
