Feather: The Pressure Relief Cushion

Two out of three spinal cord injury patients develop pressure ulcers, leading to $150,000 in hospital costs per operation and ultimately taking the lives of 60,000 Americans annually. Prolonged contact and pressure caused by sitting on a wheelchair leaves patients at high-risk to develop pressure ulcers. Our solution, the Feather Cushion, is a smart cushion that alleviates areas of high pressure. Unlike other available options which have to be custom made, our cushion system is designed to fit any standard wheelchair and is easily accessible via our app.
