Ayzer Sense is developing a low-cost, Smart Automated Body-Pressure Redistributor (SABPR) to prevent the development of pressure ulcers (pressure sores).
Ayzer Sense’s SABPR comprises a specialized mattress overlay designed to sense body-pressure, map high-pressure regions, and intelligently redistribute the underlying body support to reduce pressure in high-pressure regions. This ensures that blood circulation remains adequate across all parts of the body to prevent the formation of pressure ulcers.

Pressure ulcers (also called pressure sores) develop when high pressure (>32 mmHg) reduces blood circulation in a tissue for a prolonged period.
More than 2.5 million individuals in the United States develop pressure ulcers annually. These ulcers cause a sequential decline in health status, and in serious cases, death.
Current treatment solutions are not entirely effective in preventing or eliminating the formation of pressure sores. Existing methods are —
Competitors providing mattress solutions include Hill-Rom, Stryker, and Wellsense. Their solutions, however, do not have pressure-sensing capabilities that are able to provide “smart relief” in high-pressure zones.
The Ayzer Sense SABPR targets an addressable global market of 9 million beds, which Ayzer Sense estimates at $2.7 billion.
