Clinical Evidence

Our technology has been clinically validated in over 30 evidence-based studies and published in peer-reviewed medical journals.

An Independent Meta-analysis, performed by researchers at Johns Hopkins, found that Wellsense technology provides a statistically significant reduction of 88% in the risk of developing pressure injuries. This study identified and reviewed 1,866 articles related to pressure injury prevention, published over an 11-year period (Jan. '05-Jan. '16). The researchers determined that only 2 of those studies met the inclusion criteria for the Meta-analysis - both from Wellsense.
