A Revolucionary Bedding System
The Mattress Mat Development Kit by Sensing Tex is a Product System developed for multiple applications for body pressure in bedding. It can be used for product in health, wellness for bedding applications such as measure and monitor patient position, evaluate patient comfort, identify pressure on risk areas, measure position for wellness purposes, among other applications.
The main application of this Mattress Mat is for ulcer prevention in reduced mobility persons. The sensor mat provided allows the detection of non uniform pressures in a certain surface in a mattress which for a long time could end up making skin ulcers.
An accurate monitoring of the pressure will allow to generate alarms or other way of interacting with the monitored person (or personal taking care of him/her) to reduce the risk due to large periods of pressure in a certain parts of the body. All bed-bound persons or those whose ability to reposition easily is impaired have high risk of pressure ulcers.
The Mattress Mat system will improve the monitoring of special pressure points that are sensitive to ulcers as sacrum, ischium, trochanters, heels, elbows and the back of the head.

About Mattress Mat Development kit
A non intrusive system
The sensor Mat is integrated on top of the mattress in a cover. The sensor area will be packed accordingly to customer requirements.
No installation work is required; simply place the Mattress Mat on a Mattress. Make sure it covers the mattress.
It is very difficult that the system gets damaged and the cost makes feasible just a replacement of it. No installation work is necessary.
To monitor larger areas (e.g mattress), 6 Pressure Sensor Tex systems may be needed.
The system can be used in articulated beds. Smooth pressure will be noticed due to articulation.
Since the systems compare pressures in several points through an extensive sensoring matrix, further development could lead to advanced algorithms considering person’s weight to distinguish between normal and risky body positions.
Which part number we should order if we want to test a mattress size solution?
Mattress Mat Dev Kit Product System as stated above
The available size of the Pressure Tex does not fit exactly with our needs. What can we do?
The Mattress Mat t is based on standard customer requirements. A customized solution is normally the expected outcome for your industrial orders. Do not hesitate to contact our engineer team.
I need more resolution in my measurements, is it possible?
We can design almost anything you can imagine, from big area sensor mats to high resolution small area pressure sensors. Contact us and you will have the solution you need.
