Starting with October 2018, Motivation Foundation Romania has started using an ingenious pressure mapping system, procured with the support of our partners from the Vodafone Romania Foundation, within the project Look at Abilities – Health and Independent Living for Wheelchair Users.
At the end of October, Guido Serwane, a representative of T-Technik und Reha Vertriebs GmbH, held a training for using the pressure mapping system. The training course was attended by active rehabilitation trainers, physical therapists and wheelchair technicians.
The BodiTrak Pressure Mapping System helps us to identify areas where pressure sores could occur because of pressure and to help prevent them by adjusting the position of the person in the wheelchair, adjusting the cushion or the mobility equipment according to the user’s needs. Thus, we want to improve the lives of wheelchair users and support them in caring for their health.
