FoKoS-Woche in Siegen
Gait recording with an age simulation suit
Shaping a humane future
Over 1.000 visitors participated in the FoKoS-Woche “Zukunft menschlich gestalten” (“Shaping a humane future”) at the University of Siegen. For a week, the visitors were able to test the trends of the future on site.
One of the Show highlights was the “Intelligent living-room” where, among other things, the SensFloor displayed the residents’ activity, reported falls and recorded gait patterns. With the help of an age simulation suit and the gait recording tool, the visitors had the possibility to test and observe directly how the gait pattern changes through the ageing process. The result was quite impressive for all participants and proved how helpful it can be to use an intelligent flooring by persons at risk of falling.

GeoIoT World Conference
“Applications of SensFloor for Connected Situational Awareness in Care and Medicine”
Future-Shape wins once more the innovation prize awarded by the German Ministry of Economy and Energy
With a significant enhancement of the SensFloor® System, the SensFloor® Gait application for the activity monitoring, Future-Shape has won for the second time the federal prize for outstanding innovative achievements, awarded each year by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. The Future-Shape team had the honour of receiving the innovation award during a festive ceremony taking place at the IHM, International Handcraft trade fair in Munich.
The SensFloor® System is a textile-based underlay with integrated proximity sensors, developed by Future-Shape GmbH. Whenever a person walks across the floor, signals are transmitted to a transceiver, which detects the direction and speed of the movements and recognises a person lying on the floor after a fall. The main applications for this system are the workflow optimisation, fall detection and prevention in hospitals, care and retirement homes. Now SensFloor® Gait can do even more: through a sophisticated data analysis it is now possible to realise high-resolution activity monitoring as well as gait recording. With these functions, the sensitive floor is becoming an important tool for medical staff. “Doctors or therapists can detect changes in their patients and thus quantify the efficiency of the treatments and rehabilitation measures”, explains Raoul Hoffmann, who is finalising his doctorate on this topic at Future-Shape. For Future-Shape, the federal award for innovation reaffirms the strive to pursue the development of solutions for digitalisation, the business segment of the future.
