This article describes the design and development of a lost cost pressure measurement system for persons with spinal cord injury. The aim of the project was to design a system to increase the availability of seating and positioning evaluation technology for use in developing countries. The system consists of a balloon attached to a length of flexible tubing and filled with colored water. A diagram shows the system in operation and total cost is around $2.00.
