New improved version 2021

The new Seating Mat Dev Kit has been designed for healthcare purposes and recognises sensing patterns and manage captured data to provide smart solutions for low mobility patients.

Based on the Seat Mat project completed with the support of SmartX, our Seating mat for healthcare development kit is a great software and hardware platform to implement your smart solutions for wheelchairs.

The Android and iOS app can read and analyse the pressure data measured by the sensors, and give recommendations based on pre-set parameters. Contact us for co-creation or customisation options.

Our Seating Mat 1.9 is a plug and play device that can be installed on most cushions available on the market. Contact us for customisation options.

What is included in the Seating Mat Development Kit?

With the Kit you will receive a Sensing Mat with a matrix of 16×16 sensors and 320×320 mm size, two adhesive strips of Velcro to fasten the mat to the desired surface, an electronic unit to decode and send the information from the sensors, a USB cable and a transportation bag.

Can I buy the components separately?

The Development Kits are whole products and are only sold as a set. If you are and Educational Institution or a researcher, contact us and we will send you our Sensing Mat Outlet List.

The size of the mat does not fit my needs, can I order a different size of Sensing Mat?

We can customize almost every feature of the Sensing Mats: size, number of sensors, resolutions, color, textile lamination, electronic unit, etc. Keep in mind, however, that the cost of a customization is significantly higher that the one of a Development Kit, as we need to do the set-up and tooling just for you. If you want to read more about our customization process, please go to the section “How We Work” under the “About Us” header in our page.

Where can I find detailed technical information about the Development Kit?

You can download the Data Sheet of the Development Kit by clicking on the “DATA SHEET” button under the “Description” part.

Do you provide any Developer Guide?

Yes, after the delivery of the order you will receive in your email a link to a folder with a Developer Guide, APIs, software and all the necessary information to program your application.

I have a clear idea of the end application I want to develop but I don’t know where to start. Can you help me?

The cost of the Development Kit includes our technical support and guidance throughout the whole process of testing the platform. We will help you to define the specifications before moving to the prototyping phase in order to ensure the success of this stage.

Is the software included in the Kit?

Together with the Development Kit we provide a Demo Software to display the pressure maps measured by the Sensing Mat. The software is included to the Dropbox folder that is sent to your email after the delivery of the order.

How is data from the pressure maps exported?

The data from the pressure maps is exported in JSON format, which can be opened with Excel, our own Demo Software or any program that allows to open this kind of files. Ultimately, these files are the input to develop your own applications and detect the needed patterns.
