Pressure sensor supplier seeks pressure cushion manufacturer to help create new product range
A manufacturer of pressure mapping systems is looking for a manufacturer of medium and high-risk pressure cushions to work with to produce a new seating range for mobility retailers.
Established in 2017, Sensormedical Ltd, a manufacturer of piezotronic sensors and the Body Pressure Mapping system, is the development division of the Semefab Group, with manufacturing facilities in England, Scotland and Spain.
The company specialises in pressure sensing with its Body Pressure Mapping system which it describes as an affordable and advanced technology capable of visualising pressure points in real-time using sensors.
Speaking with Simon Sverdloff, Managing Director of Body Pressure Mapping, he explained how the Body Pressure Mapping system currently works.
“A mattress, made of flexible, waterproof material, which monitors patient movement and immobility, zips over a single hospital or standard single mattress, allowing patient welfare to be monitored using an Android smartphone, Windows laptop or Android tablet,” he told THIIS.
“Additionally, a simple mat system can be used to assess patients’ well-being on the outside of the bed, meaning that bed-falling incidents of catastrophic nature can be minimised.
“The wheelchair cushion, working in the same way as the mattress, uses red and blue on the system to highlight pressure points, offering peace of mind for carers with patients who cannot communicate their discomfort.”
The company is now planning to expand its portfolio and bring a new product to the mobility market.
“We are now looking at incorporating the sensors inside pressure care cushions and are looking to work with a manufacturer,” Simon told THIIS.
“We will then start to supply pressure care suppliers, mobility dealers who specialise in this area.”
In particular, Sensormedical are keen to hear from medium to high risk pressure cushion manufacturers, combining the two technologies together to deliver an advanced pressure care solution to the market.
