    Our aim is to design a cushion that relieves pressure for bedridden patients who have developed pressure ulcers or have high tendency of developing it because of their already occurring condition
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The problem we are targeting is to provide a cheaper and innovative solution to pressure ulcer patients. Our cushion will be a portable cushion that will ease the pain of pressure ulcer patients or prevent them from developing in patients who have low mobility.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People who have already developed pressure ulcers or are suffering from some medical condition that limit their ability to change positions or cause them to spend most of their time in a bed or on a chair. Our aim is to ease and prevent the pain caused using the pressure redistribution system.
How will the solution works
    We provide a solution which basically inflates and deflates sections of the cushion in order to release the pressure from one pressure point to a different part of the body, maintaining a healthy pressure distribution throughout. This produces a massaging effect and eases pain.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are gel based pressure cushions and cushions with air compartments which inflates using an air pump. Our solution is different from them because it will sense real time pressure input and also take input from the user according to his/her comfort and redistribute it accordingly.
