A miniature, implantable force transducer has been developed for the extraluminal measurement of segmental smooth muscle contractility and has been applied to the oviduct in the Macaca mulatta. The force transducer makes use of a commercially available piezoresistive silicon strain sensor bonded to a flexible metal strip. The device is housed in a tissue compatible, gas sterilizable tubule upon which are placed sutures for subsequent extraluminal attachment to an organ.
