Integrated Pressure Sensing

iQ sensing helps pressure cushion users stay active

​We manufacture and sell a lot of Pressure Care cushions but they aren’t miracle workers however keeping people moving, healthy and active can be.
This is exactly where iQ pressure sensing improves your users lifestyle…..

What it does…

In all of our pressure cushions apart from Lowzone and Lowzone Gel Switch you can have an integral pressure sensor added.

The sensor is situated within the cushion and activated when a user sits on their cushion, it will give them regular prompts in the sound of a beep if they haven’t moved.

We all need these prompts to ensure we are moving regular, this should be an action carried out to our full capabilities.

For people using our pressure cushions their range of movement vary hugely so it could be the user leans from one side to the other, it could be they weight bear for a few minutes or do a job around the house and then come back to their chair.
