Partners to advance pressure mapping

Minneapolis-based Ottobock inked a partnership in late June with PatienTech/Vista Medical, a distributor of pressure sensing technology in Winnipeg, Canada, that gives Ottobock exclusive distribution rights to Vista Medical’s BodiTrak Smart Fabric pressure mapping system.

BodiTrak uses advanced electronic sensors with built-in “smart” electronics and 3D stretchable, breathable, pressure-sensing material, facilitating an interface pressure map that closely represents actual conditions at load-bearing surfaces.

“With its pioneering technology and its efficiency in addressing the important quality of life issue of skin breakdown, the BodiTrak pressure mapping system is a great fit with the Ottobock brand,” said Ottobock Vice President of Mobility Solutions Matt Swiggum.
