Kalogon to upgrade its smart wheelchair cushion software (by Alex Soderstrom)

What does Kalogon do?

The Kalogon Orbiter Smart Cushion uses a combination of machine learning and patent-pending air cell technology to automatically adjust pressures applied on a wheelchair user’s buttocks and thighs. The cushion is designed to detect pressure points in real time to redistribute pressure, and aims to increase comfort and maintain blood flow through this adjusting process. Users and caregivers can use a companion app to personalize their experience to support pressure injury healing and pain relief.
