Persons with disabilities who uses the wheelchair are at a higher risk of pressure injury and falling due to the consequences of sitting on the wheelchair for a long period of time.
The solution is to develop a smart pad, a device that predicts and prevent pressure ulcer and falling risks for wheelchair-users. Its automated monitoring and alert system will notify persons with disabilities and their caregivers of any crucial information.
The project aims to:
- Improve the well-being of wheelchair-users and their caregivers
- Enable wheelchair-users to live independently and perform self-assessment intervention whenever required
- Increase the self-confidence and producitivty of wheelchair-users
