Sensing Tex Introduces The Seat Mat
Focused On Pressure Injuries Prevention

The Problem of Pressure Injuries

Did you know that between 1 and 1.5% of the population worldwide is wheelchair bound? with almost 5 Million in the EU alone. And because of the ageing of the population in most EU countries, this number is expected to grow in time.

Moreover one of the biggest issues that comes with wheelchair users is the rise in the incidence of pressure ulcers, especially in the segment of population with the lowest mobility.

We have developed the smartest solution to tackle this problem!

Innovation and Solution

The objective of this project was the development of Seat Mat, a white label product based on our Seating Mat dev kit 1.8 (current TRL7) to be applied for a wheelchair for pressure ulcer prevention as the main vertical application. The Seat Mat is a TRL8 that will be marketed under the name Seating Mat dev kit 1.9 (Seat Mat). The purpose of the Seat Mat system is to deliver qualitative raw data (from pressure maps) to recognise high quality magnitudes by using latest data analytics, delivering data for tracking postural analysis, detecting hotspots and recommend repositioning.

A smart wheelchair pad connected to a smartphone that monitors the users and gives him recommendations on actions to take to prevent pressure sores from appearing.

A simple architecture that yields great results:

Sync your pad to the app and you’re all set!
