Hector Engineering Co., Inc.

Hector Engineering Co., Inc. (HEC) provides specialized design and engineering services including preliminary design, prototyping, and production of unique sensing, measurement, and control devices for use in various applications, including human performance, biology, physiology, zoology and neuropsychology research, among others. HEC specializes in engineering custom solutions to unique problems faced in scientific research.

HEC has designed and built custom electronic, mechanical and electro-mechanical devices for research for over 25 years. In 1982 Dr. Hector began Hector Engineering to design and fabricate custom miniature mass flowmeters for studying respiration and vocalization in birds and bats. Continuously for over 25 years dozens of studies have relied on HEC's products for the study of neural control of respiration and vocalization.

HEC's products were expanded to fill a need for sensing, measurement and control for research in human performance including respiration, cardiac impedance, electromyography, and motion sensing. HEC has become expert with a wide variety of electronic sensing systems and has designed and built systems for many simple and complex sensing and measurement functions from temperature control and mechanical displacement to non-invasive devices for sensing cardiac output in ambulatory human subjects and sonar detection of animals in a caged system. Dr. Hector's combined expertise and insight in medical sciences, physiology, biomechanics, zoology, electronic and mechanical engineering are unique and allow Hector Engineering to solve customers' instrumentation problems from relatively simple customer descriptions of their sensing and measurement needs.
