We bring scientific certainty to decisions about product feel

Our game-changing technology replicates and quantifies human touch

Is touch important to your brand and your business? SynTouch gives you the ability to make haptic decisions based on objective data rather than subjective opinion alone. Everything the human finger can feel, the Toccare® Haptic Measurement System can precisely and repeatedly quantify in a biomimetic way. Harness touch to your business objectives in ways you never thought possible, with more speed, accuracy, and lower cost compared to current methods.

A machine with a human touch
If the human fingertip can perceive it, so can our instrument. The SynTouch Toccare system collects tactile data from your sample and applies signal-processing technology inspired by human neurophysiology. It’s fast, accurate and proven.

The SynTouch Standard: 15 Dimensions of Touch
The SynTouch Standard classifies and quantifies 15 dimensions that comprise the sense of touch, enabling you to compare, test, communicate and optimize with both subtlety and accuracy, the first time and every time.

A proven system with tangible advantage

The proven SynTouch Toccare combines advanced instrumentation and software to solve today’s business problems around touch. Machines with yesterday’s technology have major limitations. Sensory panels are expensive, noisy, and time-consuming.

Our mission is to reduce risk, cost, and save time when product feel is important. You get actionable feedback faster. Eliminate the subjective guess and check, trial and error, and darts in the dark. Prevent supply-chain hiccups, mistakes, and costly delays. Reduce product recall. Shorten sales cycles.
