30Patient Safety Market: Hardware LX100 Sensors“The most advanced pressure imaging sensor available.”Improved accuracy (low hysteresis, low creep, high repeatability)Excellent calibration stabilitySame conforming, durable and reliable characteristics as our current seat and mattress sensors
31Patient Safety Market: Hardware LX100 Sensors Calibration StabilityThe LX100 calibration remains within ± 2% full scale of the initial calibration after five years of accelerated lifetime testing, based on the ASTM (section 9) standard.
32Patient Safety Market: Hardware LX100 Sensors Same Great FeaturesSame durability, flexibility and conformability for which XSENSOR products are known.
33LX100 Sensors Patient Safety Market: Hardware Hysteresis Creep RepeatabilityWhen previous sensor measurements affect current sensor measurements, causing them to be less accurate.Sensor shape changes as weight and heat are applied. Sensors can become inaccurate if pressure is applied for a long time.Desired sensor performance is where patient measurements remain consistent, even when measured at different times or under different conditions.Need to KnowNeed To KnowLow hysteresis: New materials and new algorithms in software that compensate for its effects.Low creep: Construction methods reduce the effects of creep. Patients can sit on pads for extended periods of time without causing inaccuracy.High repeatability: The LX100 is industry standard for repeatability, based on its superior technology, construction and supporting software.
