What is Pressure Imaging?
Also known as Pressure Mapping. Individual subject images with tabular data are included in this Imaging has been conducted onsite at the North America Mattress Corp. manufacturing facility in Clackamas OR using Tactilus® imaging hardware and software, manufactured by Sensor Products Inc. of Madison, New Jersey USA.
Tactilus® is a metrix-based tactile surface sensor and software to record and interpret pressure distribution and magnitude between any two contacting or mating surfaces.
Testing was performed in a controlled environment where the mattress was placed on a rigid laboratory surface and draped with the Tactilus® Sensor Pad. Summary test results tables are arranged according to body region for each subject. The minimum, average and maximum readings for barometric pressure are displayed in terms of mmHg (millimeters of mercury).
