Engage Biomechanics is concerned with preventing pressure ulcers, a type of injury which is painful, costly and surprisingly common. Studies have consistently found incidence rates of 25-40 per cent, with direct treatment costs measured in the billions of dollars to healthcare systems. Yet prevention of pressure ulcers is straightforward; at-risk patients need only be "turned" every two to three hours. Engage is developing a simple, easy-to-use wearable wireless sensor system, which monitors the posture of movement-impaired patients and prompts caregivers to turn them if they remain in one posture for too long. Prompts and other data from the system are made available via "the cloud" anywhere, any time, and on any device. Having attracted grant funding from FedDev and OCE, and having developed a full-fledged prototype, Engage is now gearing up for beta testing and product launch later in 2013.
