Temperature sensing mats provide the ability to measure temperatures between the client and the seat or bed support surface. The temperature mat reads the ambient top and bottom temperature and the average temperature for each sensor is computed.
The mats are available in small, seat, torso and bed sizes, with 144, 256, 352 and 512 thermistors respectively. Custom mats can also be ordered and are quoted upon receipt and completion of specifications.
Temperature sensing mats are constructed of conductive fabric with the thermistors attached to the fabric. These are ceramic thermistors so no need to recalibrate. The mats are covered in polyurethane that is perforated to allow air movement.
All mat orders include the new PRO software. As well, wireless connectivity is now standard and you simply select in the software for wireless or USB connectivity.
The temperature mats use the same FSA PRO software used for pressure mats and other products such as the GPMS. They provide valuable information for example about how a person interacts thermally with the support materials they are sitting on, its shape and the cover placed over the support materials.
