Sensors for a Wearable Product
Need to identify the right sensors for a wearable product. Sensors need to detect muscle/tendon movement under skin.

Hello everyone,

I am looking to identify the right sensors for an arduino project I am doing. I need to identify sensors which can detect movement of muscles/tendons under the skin. The sensors need to be thin and relatively cheap (say between $1 to $10 per sensor).

I am thinking of using the FSR400 from Interlink Electronics, but are there any better sensors available in similar form factor?

Would love to have your suggestions and thoughts. I am very new to this project and have to learn a lot.

Thanks for your response.
