One of the biggest factors affecting the ongoing health of wheelchair users is surface pressure, which can cause tissue damage.
The XSENSOR Pressure Imaging System assists therapists and clinicians to prevent potentially devastating injuries by measuring and documenting pressure markers on the patient's seated position in their wheelchair. It can also be used on a regular seat or mattress.
We always welcome feedback, compliments and complaints.
