    Computerized Pressure Mapping mat

    Anyone have one for sale? Anyone know where to get one for a reasonable price?

    They are really not designed for individual use, and proper use requires some experience and training, but this is one of the least expensive on the market:

      Thanks. If it were a 1-time thing, then I would visit a PT. But it's just not practical to rely on a PT each time I come across a new cushion or want to test/modify furniture, car seats, and mattresses. I'm sure I can acquire one at retail. But how about the used market?

        Most are purchased by institutions or therapy practices, and they use them until they no longer function, or replace with a newer model. There are websites that sell used hospital equipment where you might run across one occasionally, but I think you are going to have a very difficult time finding one. The hospital where I worked had a contract with such a company for our used equipment; much of it was sold again by them in Mexico.

          Just an FYI... I have been working with Mayo CLinic on a mapping system that would be integrated in with your cushion to give you real time feedback on your seating pressure points via a phone app. Its pretty slick. Unfortunately its a ways off yet before its commercially available.
