Abstract: Pressure injuries and ulcers result in high morbidity and healthcare burden and contribute to burnout of caregivers. The Smart Automated Body-Pressure Redistributor (SABR) is a mattress device designed to sense body pressure and automatically redistribute the air pressures in the underlying air bladders supporting the body. This technical study demonstrated that the SABR mattress device is able to reliably detect and alleviate high pressure and provide sustained avoidance of high pressures underlying the body. This device can potentially be used for the prevention and management of pressure injuries and when scaled-up and can possibly contribute to the reduction of healthcare burden in the ageing population.
