Pressure Injuries

Despite the adoption of stringent turning protocols, advanced support surfaces and the best efforts of caregivers, HAPU/I's remain a significant and costly safety problem.

Without a new intervention that provides caregivers with both visual and evaluative feedback on the presence of pressure and the effectiveness of their actions to offload pressure, HAPU/I's will continue to negatively impact patient quality of life and create a substantial financial burden for the patient, family and healthcare system
