Lenexa Medical is an Australian-based MedTech company that’s developing technology to empower clinicians to deliver targeted, long-term solutions for pressure injury prevention and detection.
Despite widespread recognition that pressure injuries are mostly preventable, they remain a devastating health problem, with more than 300,000 cases in Australia every year.
The Lenexa Medical Smart Sheet concept is a world-first, ultra-thin fabric bed sheet with in-built sensing capabilities and smart software for detecting and monitoring patient position, posture, and presence. It will provide clinicians with non-subjective data to guide correct positioning and presence monitoring of patients over time.
This life-saving technology is an innovative solution to a multibillion-dollar healthcare burden, providing clinicians and carers with the information required to drive real improvements in the quality of patient care.
