Team Smart Ass is designed for use by individuals who are at risk or have pressure sores. Smart Ass is a pressure sensing mat to fit under the seat of a wheelchair. Each prong of the 3D printed X sits atop a pressure sensor, while running through an Arduino. It connects to an app, which shows the pressure in darkening shades of red, indicating both where pressure points may occur, but also encouraging the user to move when one sector has seen pressure for too long. Future iterations could include more sensors for more detailed impressions.
Team Smart Ass was a co-winner of both the Google.org award for Innovation and the TechShop award for Self Manufacturing. Team members: Shaun Giudici, Paul Herzlich, Pierre Karashchuk, Yakshu Madaan, Tomás Vega, Jonathan Bank, Oscar Segovia, Hagit Al
