Objective pressure analysis for optimizing seating and positioning.
The CONFORMat™ system provides accurate, real-time information on pressure distribution and Center of Force (CoF) trajectory that helps providers develop optimal seating and positioning system for each individual patient. The unique, truly flexible design makes the CONFORMat the most advanced pressure mapping system available for seat and back analysis.
Portable, lightweight sensor is easy to move between patients and facilities
In a recent study1, the CONFORMat was found to have superior performance over other interface pressure mats on:
1Pipkin & Sprigle (2008) Effect of Model Design, Cushion Construction, and Interface Pressure Mats on Interface Pressure and Immersion. JRRD, Vol. 45, No. 6, pp. 875–882.
Numerous articles have been published regarding seating and positioning pressure mapping and its applications. Tekscan has compiled a list of these research publications in our Medical Bibliography.
A Tekscan system consists of scanning electronics, software, and patented thin-film sensors. The CONFORMat™ system is configurable based on your application requirements.
CONFORMat Tethered: Wires connect the sensor and scanning electronics on the subject to the computer via USB port.
Scanning speed is 100 Hz with Evolution™ electronics.
Scanning speed is 100 Hz with VersaTek™ electronics.
*VersaTek sytems is shown.
CONFORMat Wireless: Data is transmitted directly from the subject to the computer, allowing for a wide range of applications.
Data can be recorded with the subject up to 100 meters away and displayed on the computer in real time. A 100 Hz scan rate is available.
CONFORMAT Datalogger: The datalogger function allows recordings to be stored on the unit and uploaded at a later date.
Ideal for use when a recording needs to be made over an extended period of time.
Scan rates of 100 Hz can be achieved with the datalogger connection.
* Components depend on system configuration. Additional items may be included with your system purchase.
Evolution and VersaTek electronics connect to the sensor, gather the data from the sensor, and then process and send this data to your computer via USB connection. When you choose a system that uses VersaTek electronics, it is possible to share electronics for other Tekscan systems to reduce your costs.
