Wellsense of Nashville, Tennessee is a company that’s developed a monitoring technology that helps prevent pressure ulcers in bed ridden patients in a clinical setting. The MAP System involves a special electronic sheet placed over a mattress that has thousands of sensors that in real time detect the pressure distribution of the patient’s body over the bed.
The system sounds alarms to make sure patients turn over on a regular basis and keeps a history of the pressures to make sure each patient receives continuous care over multiple shifts.
Here’s a video presenting the MAP System:
