Bedding Mat Platform: based on pressure sensors, turn a standard mattress into a smart bed to recognize risk patterns and provide ulcer or position prevention.
The Bedding Mat Platform is a smart matress solution suitable ecosystem developed for multiple applications for body pressure mapping in bed. It can be used in health and wellness bedding applications, such as pressure ulcer prevention, measure and monitor patient position, evaluate patient comfort, identify pressure on risk areas and measure the position for wellness purposes among other applications as a Point of Sales System to recommend the most suitable composition of a mattress to fulfill customer sleeping needs.
The main application of this pressure mapping Mattress Mat is to prevent ulcers for people with reduced mobility. The sensor mat allows the detection of non-uniform pressures in certain mattress surface, overtime resulting in skin ulcers. An accurate monitoring of the pressure mapping will allow alarms to be generated to reduce the risk due to large periods of pressure in certain parts of the human body. All bed-bound and chair-bound people or those who have impaired ability to reposition easily may have a high risk of pressure ulcers.
The Mattress Mat Dev Kit monitors pressure points within the body that are sensitive to ulcers, specifically to the sacrum, ischium, trochanters, heels, elbows and the back of the head.
