Abstract

This paper reviews the types of instruments used and problems encountered in the measurement of human biting forces. A new instrument, developed for this purpose, which employs strain gauges mounted on a cantilever bridge bite element is described. Associated circuitry, which includes a Wheatstone bridge, amplifier, and integrator, is described. The integrator enables the investigator to record accumulative force over time. Biting force values recorded at five different areas of the mouth are presented from 11 male and 8 female Ss.
