Final thoughts Bone What is pressure sore? -Also called decubiti, decubitus ulcer and bedsores. Subcutaneous

Soft Tissue Skin Layer Stage 1 What causes pressure sores after spinal cord injury? Stage 2 o Decrease in blood circulation

o Lower tolerance for pressure o lack of sensation Stage 3 Stage 4 Images c/o Ian Denison, Physiotherapist G.F. Strong Rehabilitaion Centre

Pressure Relief System Shoulder Blade o The fast development of body sores o Side effects of sudden blood flow Tail Back of Knee

Bone Wheelchair Tipping Stability o Sudden Muscle Spasm o Navigating Over Sidewalk Curbs o Meeting an Immovable Obstacle o Reaching awkwardly for something Foot

Sitting Bone In 2003,65-80% of 100000 wheelchair related injuries in US were due to tips and fall Image c/o Solution A system which moves the upper body of the user left and right in a controlled manner.

Goals 1.Provide Pressure Relief to User 2.Increase Stability of Wheelchair 3.Provide Manual Control to the User Modes of Operation Pressure Relief
