Abstract

A rotatable brush with a pressure sensor. The pressure sensor comprises a projecting blade connected to a tactile sensor by a flexible member. The projecting blade extends along the length of the shaft and is housed among the plurality of bristles protruding radially from the shaft. The projecting blade compresses the flexible member when pressure around the brush reaches a predetermined threshold. Upon compression of the flexible member, the tactile sensor, electronically coupled with a processor or controller, is activated thereby triggering a variety of possible preprogrammed responses.
