Loop +


The challenge

We have always cared about projects that give back to the community and improve people's quality of life, like Loop+ does. Wheelchair users spend extended periods of time in a fixed position and this puts them at risk of suffering pressure injuries. Working together with Loop+, we built a portable pressure sensor acquisition system to address this problem.

The solution

The solution acquires pressure data which is then relayed to the user’s mobile application via Bluetooth systems based upon a microcontroller running a real-time operating system (RTOS) optimised for low-power embedded devices. Great care has been taken to ensure that this device is safe for medical use. We've carefully tested characteristics such as thermal behaviour and optimised battery sub-systems without compromising the battery life or performance of this life-changing technology.
