In a co-innovation project with Dutch wheelchair manufacturer Life & Mobility, SAP equips wheelchairs with sensors to provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between sitting posture and detrimental discomforts. The data on pressure distribution, temperature and sitting position are stored and analyzed in the SAP Cloud Platform using SAP Leonardo Analytics and IoT.
The long-term effects of sitting in a wheelchair can be devastating: patients can get pressure ulcers and spine and muscle deformities, feel pain or are simply exhausted after up to 14 hours of sitting. Bad posture is a major challenge to them, because often wheelchair-bound patients are not able to control or change their sitting position on their own. With 132 million people in wheelchairs, this is a big problem in terms of individual's pain and high costs for the healthcare system. SAP Netherlands is working to change by developing a smart wheelchair. Created in collaboration with Dutch manufacturer of wheelchairs and mobility scooters, Life & Mobility, an advanced prototype of the smart wheelchair has integrated sensors that continually generate mass data from the patient actually sitting in it, for example the pressure distribution in the seat and backrest. Based on SAP Leonardo, these big data are collected and stored centrally in the SAP Cloud Platform and analyzed with help of SAP Analytics.
How can we stay centred in our high pace, hectic life, always online? Mindfulness can help.
When we practice mindfulness, we learn to focus your attention to the present moment, the only time we actually dispose.
Studies show that mindfulness helps to better focus our mind, better regulate emotions, and feel happier. Watch the video and try yourself.
Dr. Tanja Schaetz-Kruft is deep in Thailand's rain forest tracking tigers with George, her local partner from the WWF.
They seek to find ways to enhance their conservation efforts to help tigers get back on the path to thriving.
Normally on a Friday, Tanja would be in Germany collecting donations for her foundation: http://a-world-for-tigers.org/.
This Friday, however, supported by her employer, SAP, she's on an expedition with purpose – helping to save at least one species close to her heart: Tigers.
