XSENSOR® Technology Corporation has made pressure mapping (also called pressure imaging) systems for rehabilitation professionals since 1995.  Our systems provide the ability to see interface pressures in real time to assess wheelchair cushions and backrests, hospital mattresses and other support surfaces. We enable rehab professionals to see pressure distributions on surfaces, helping them to determine whether a support surface is appropriate for a patient.  By using an XSENSOR® system, clinicians can help to prevent or effectively treat pressure ulcers. 

How it Works

XSENSOR® pressure mapping systems combine flexible sensor mats with software and electronics to create real time video of the interface pressure distribution on a support surface. Using this information, clinicians are able to locate areas of high pressure. In medical settings, this information can be used for several purposes:

  • Checking a support surface for comfort and pressure distribution
  • Selecting a new support surface, such as a wheelchair cushion, by comparing different products
  • Educating patients on correct positioning and pressure relief techniques
  • Creating a custom wheelchair seating configuration, including molded surfaces
  • Designing and manufacturing support surfaces for pressure redistribution and comfort

We offer two different types of systems to achieve these clinical goals. Our portable X3 DISPLAY systems are preferred by our customers, since their touchscreen software is easy to learn and the systems are simple to move around.  The easy to use plug and play X3 Platform systems offer the benefits of a full set of analytical tools.  Our industry-leading technology comes with all our systems and includes flexible, high-resolution sensors that conform well to contoured support surfaces.

Benefits

Based on excellent clinician feedback, leading hospitals around the world choose XSENSOR® because of our portability, sensor flexibility and durability, and thoughtful product designs. 

We make sensors that are flexible and durable. Our sensors are highly conformable and have excellent resolution, allowing clinicians to see interface pressures over complex support surfaces in detail. The additional sensing points in all of our sensors make it easy to see elevated pressure areas clearly, especially on surfaces that adapt to a patient's body shape. With our LX100 line, we offer standalone accuracy combined with the ability to operate the sensor without calibrating for years at a time.
