Pressure-Sensitve Bed Mat

Problem: Pressure sensitive mats placed in a bed or chair have been shown to be highly effective in the measurement of many physiological properties but there is no mat currently available that is both cost effective and meets the needs of  

Solution: Novel pressure sensing technologies have been recently developed at Carleton while Hexyoo has a novel compressible gel that they are able to fabricate.  The integration of these two technologies produce a made-in-Canada mat for integration across multiple applications.

Impact: This creates a new market for pressure sensitive mats that can measure diverse physiological properties and extend the breadth of passive sensing that can be performed homes, residences and assisted living.
