Pressure Ulcers

If you spend significant time in a wheelchair you are at risk of developing pressure ulcers.  

Every year 3 million people suffer from pressure sores and 600,000 patients lose their lives due to complications related to pressure ulcers each year in the US.

The best way to prevent ulcers is to change position and perform pressure relief exercises.   

Garrison Redd's Story

“When I was 17, on an ordinary summer night in NY I got struck by a stray bullet while walking outside my house.”  

The young high school football star was not the intended target, but in that moment, his goal to go pro was shattered. 

“My doctor said, ‘You may not be a pro football player, but you can be a coach.’ And from there I just thought about becoming a leader. I’m gonna inspire people. I’m gonna motivate people to be their best self. 

Now I am both a coach and a US Paralympic Weightlifting Athlete.” Garrison is now the top athlete in his weight class in the country now. 

He can lift more than twice his body weight. 

“The new Sensoria Mat is easy to use and it can help people get started and stay healthy by weight shifting and lifting part of their own weight on a wheelchair a few times a day, coached by a simple and elegant mobile app in their own wellness and fitness journey.”  – Garrison Redd
