The aim of the project is to develop a sensory monitoring system for the pressure caused by a seated wheelchair user in the places of contact, which would prevent the formation of bruises. The system will be developed with an emphasis on low price, universality and reliability.

New pressure-sensitive materials will be used, which will be sewn into the coating of the seating or support system, or applied to their solid part. The evaluation unit will measure the level of load and alert you when limit values are exceeded. It will be possible to evaluate the data in the SW application.
