Project Description

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

How the Seat Mat works

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

Future development of the Seat Map

The objective is to develop a White label-certified and approved product based on the current version of our Seating Mat dev kit (Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 7 - see video) to be used in wheelchairs for pressure ulcer prevention, called the Seat Mat (TRL8). An OEM solution for retailers and distributors of wheelchair systems, it is ready to be integrated into cloud services. Seat Map by Sensing Text
