Simpleware Case Study: Evaluating Wheelchair Cushion Designs

In this study, researchers at Tel Aviv University and ROHO Inc. analysed how wheelchair cushion design affects the risk of pressure ulcers. MRI data of a male subject was used to generate a robust 3D model in Simpleware software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of stresses in FEBio. Comparisons were made between different types of wheelchair cushions to determine how they respond to pressures. The study was successful at evaluating the effectiveness of FE modelling for studying interactions between wheelchair users and equipment.
