What it does

Our device actively tracks pressure points of a patient lying on a bed and inflates pockets in the bed to prevent bed sores from forming.

How we built it

Arduino Mega feeding information to a Node.js server for a graphical interface. Makeshift solenoids have been placed throughout the bed in order to inflate pockets of air to alleviate pressure where needed to prevent bed sores from forming.

What's next for ABSP - Active Bed Sore Prevention

Production ready product as well as full body coverage when time and resources are more readily available.
