The use of the Lones Saw Shoe significantly reduces the amount of work done while making a cut of the same length.

Project Summary


Concrete Construction


Nashport, OH

Business Situation

Lones Stones needed to evaluate the physical impact their employees endure while cutting concrete.

Technical Situation

Lones Stones needed a team of engineers to design sensors for collecting data on the pressure in each hand during concrete cutting.


Occam designed work gloves lined with pressure sensors that evaluated exactly how much less force is needed to cut with the Lones Saw Shoe.


The data acquisition software generated both visual representation of the forces in each hand as well as numeric data for duration of the cut.
