DESCRIPTION

In international development, wheelchairs can provide tremendous value to an economically disadvantaged population. Sustained health impacts from these wheelchairs are not only dependent on appropriately designed products, but also on wheelchair fitting, trainings, and maintenance models. Organizations lack the resources to follow-up with all of their beneficiaries, which can result in wheelchairs breaking prematurely, and are forced to make programmatic decisions based on anecdotal or incomplete information. Sensen provides a remote data-logging and data analytics platform to give wheelchair distributors the knowledge to make informed and effective decisions. The Sensen unit attaches to a wheelchair wheel, where it logs usage patterns and performance and sends this data to a cloud server over cellular networks. The data is then aggregated, analyzed, and provided to development practitioners so they can follow-up with users when necessary and learn what works best in distribution.
