Pressure monitoring of wheelchair seating system

Project ID: CZ.01.1.02/0.0/0.0/20_321/0024430
Funding provider: Operational Programme Enterprise and Innovation for Competitiveness
Investigator at UCEEB: Ing. Vít Janovský
Project duration: 14. 12. 2020 – 31. 5. 2023
Partners: VIVA CV s.r.o., Strojírenské inovační centrum, s.r.o.

The aim of the project is to develop a sensory monitoring system of the pressure caused by a seated wheelchair user at the points of contact, preventing the formation of bruises with an emphasis on low cost, versatility 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 load rate and warn of exceeding the limit values. It will be possible to evaluate the data in the SW application.
