The intelligent mattress cover

InnovationLab's smart mattress cover, can reduce the formation of decubitus ulcers by up to 88 percent. The potentially life-threatening pressure ulcers affect up to 2.5 million hospital patients in the U.S. each year. By combining our flexible printed sensors with Bitquadrat's matching health monitoring software, we have now developed a new cost-effective bedrest platform that performs real-time personalized pressure ulcer risk assessment. It provides the most efficient way to notify nurses and other caregivers when patients need to be moved on their mattress. A significant number of patients worldwide will develop pressure ulcers, and the global mortality rate directly attributable to pressure ulcers is increasing by double digits - a very serious healthcare issue. We have identified a need in the market that we, as a developer and manufacturer of roll-to-roll printed and organic sensors, can address with our technology. Thanks to our expertise in mass production of high-precision, large-area printed pressure sensors and Bitquadrat's expertise in intelligent healthcare software, we can now deliver a cost-effective integrated hardware/software platform. This will greatly improve real-time monitoring of patients who are prone to developing pressure ulcers. Suppliers to hospitals and elderly care facilities - as well as mattress manufacturers and system integrators - can use our solution to develop a new generation of intelligent disposable bed pads. These new pads improve the patient experience by enabling caregivers to care for them more efficiently thanks to innovative technology

The smart bedrest demonstrator consists of an array of several hundred flexible printed pressure sensors from InnovationLab, combined with health monitoring software. This uses machine learning (ML)/artificial intelligence (AI) and real-time data processing. The smart bed pad assesses the risk of pressure ulcers by monitoring pressure intensity and duration at each point of contact. This is a major advantage over traditional smart mattresses with motion sensors that only detect when a patient moves and changes position.

Advantages of the intelligent bed support

Reduces the incidence of pressure ulcers - thus supporting better care in acute care settings.
Allows caregivers to monitor patients remotely in real time, rather than checking a patient's entire body for pressure ulcers every thirty minutes to two hours.
By using local AI models and on-board calculations, no sensitive data leaves the device. Only critical alarms are routed, allowing 24/7 patient monitoring and privacy.
A decrease in pressure ulcers leads to a lower risk of costly lawsuits against medical professionals.
