Project Description

Seat Mat by Sensing Tex focuses on the prevention of pressure ulcers of wheelchair users. 

How the Seat Mat works

The Seat Mat system is based on delivering qualitative raw data to recognize high-quality magnitudes from pressure maps by using the latest data analytics. The data is used for tracking postural analysis of wheelchair users, detecting hotspots, and recommending repositioning. 

Future development of Seat Mat 

The objective of the Seat Mat project has been to develop a white label-certified product based on the current version (TRL7) of the Seating Mat dev kit 1.8 to be used in wheelchairs for pressure injury prevention as the main vertical application, called the Seat Mat (TRL8). The new system is going to be launched at the beginning of September 2021.
