Demodo / Products and Applications


Pressure ulcers are a protracted and for the patient very debilitating desease. Because of pressure tissue necrotizes and causes chronic wounds. The risk depends on many factors and differs from person to person what makes care difficult.

DEMODO is a concept based on smart textiles. Smart fibres integrated in a mattress can measure pressure and further risk factors. With the software and an interface, it forms a monitoring system, that tells nurses and nurturing relatives when and how to act. It documents the nursing process and the patient‘s health. The easily prepared facts help to take individual measures to provide a pressure ulcer.
