As a doctor, Matthew Gibson oversees our Smartfoam medical applications, such as wheelchair pads and medical beds.
Smartfoam powered wheelchair pads can warn patients when a pressure sore is developing.
A Smart bed could turn on lights and music, or monitor sleep respiration as well as sleep habits of children and elderly individuals, and give warning when they get out of bed and do not return.
A smart bed can warn a nursing station when a patient needs to be moved, thus preventing pressure ulcers before they start. Consider these facts:
Decubitus/pressure ulcers affects 2.5 million patients per year and costs: $9.1-$11.6 billion per year in the US. Medicare estimated in 2007 that each pressure ulcer added $43,180 in costs to a hospital stay. These are huge problems that we are working to solve.
Smart insoles that can perform gait analysis can predict Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, and other diseases. Early diagnoses can lead to early treatments.
