High School Students Receive Patent for Pressure Sore Relief System

In 2009, four members of a high school Technolgy Student Association invented a Pressure Sore Relief System (PSRS) designed for use by bedridden patients who suffer from the chronic conditions associated with bed sores. The invention won first place at the 2009 national Technology Student Association (TSA) conference in the Electronic Research and Experimentation category. This month, the students learned that the PSRS will receive a patent.

One of the students on the project, said the PRSR started out as a classroom assignment to use electronics to solve a real world problem. The four students formed an official LLC,  met with hospital CEO's, bed sore patients and nurses in order to develop the PSRS. For more, read the story.
