FSA ST1500 Pressure Mats

The world's only three dimensional stretchable, breathable pressure sensing material. Made completely of lycra like materials.

These new sensors are extremely flexible and available in standard and industrial seat mat sizes as well as a variety of custom sizes and smaller mats. Not only can they easily be wrapped around a variety of surfaces but they can be embedded into seats or beds to provide feedback to potentially intelligently and automatically adapt to improve comfort.

The ST1500 is shipped with a stretchable water resistant cover. The ST1500 sensors are available for the previous T5/T5E Computer Interfaces.

T5E Key Features

  • Modular with external connectors
  • Faster scan rates
  • USB connected and powered
  • Blue tooth kit with rechargeable battery option

Why Choose Stretch Sensors?

  • Less hammocking and a better fit to the client
  • Less slipping and sliding with the Eastex cover (isolation bags are still available)
  • Easily cleaned with common hospital grade disinfectants
  • A very durable design, easily passing 50,000 and 100,000 cycle testing
  • Less frequent calibrations depending on your application

What is a Stretch Sensor?

The only smart fabric that is elastic and breathes.

  • 100% fabric
  • Patented
  • 3 thin elastic layers
  • Cost effective
  • Air and vapor permeable
  • Available in many sized, shapes and cover materials!

The three layers of the FSA stretch sensor are labeled in the diagram below:

  • Layer 1: Lycra like knit conductive columns
  • Layer 2: Pressure sensitive fabric, varies electrical resistance with force
  • Layer 3: Lycra like knit conductive rows
