Pressure ulcer wounds are a global problem in healthcare institutions, still. These wounds cause a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient, a high workload for the caregivers and cost a lot of money, in the EU alone already more than 15 billion Euros each year. TU Delft spin-off Momo Medical has developed a smart sensor bed sensor that solves this problem.
In this project, the following steps are taken to test the smart bed sensor in practice, in the Living Lab of the Reinier de Graaf Hospital. In addition, further commercial development is done by approaching more potential customers and understanding the cost structure of the product better when scaling up.More ...
