To ensure the integration of pressure measurement systems (Pressure Mapping Systems ) pillow and mattress covers aimed at the prevention of pressure ulcers in people with disabilities. This solution should warn when it detects that the person receives a higher pressure than tolerated . With this solution, the person or the professional could develop prevention strategies. System integration in pillow covers would allow obtaining real and continuous data without measurement system interference
Details of the Technology Call
Integration of pressure measurement system (sensors) in the same product (pillow, mattress) to avoid interference measuring instruments.
A good sensor obeys the following rules:
a) Is sensitive to the measured property only.
b) Is insensitive to any other property likely to be encountered in its application
c) Does not influence the measured property
