Jumpair (H2020 project – SME Instrument)
Randomized controlled trial of Class IIa Medical Device.

The Jumpair project aims to develop a prototype of an innovative device that combines an anti-decubitus massage system located underneath the wearer’s body with a cross-opening through an airflow. The prototype’s differentiating structure has sensors that measure body pressure, humidity, and oxygenation of the skin in the affected area. It can also provide information on the movements of the wearer, including the presence or absence of the wearer in bed, as well as data on the friction of the mattress on the skin. The airflow has an anti-humidity effect that allows drainage of the secretions produced by the ulcers.



Cáritas Diocesana de Coimbra is one of the places where the pilot would occur. Users with ulcers that would use the Jumpair mattress would be involved and compared with others that would not use the mattress.
