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.
