Abstract

With the overall prevalence of pressure injuries standing at 9.3%1 and with costs to treat ranging from $21,000 – $152,0003, pressure injuries are serious, costly and yet preventable.In today’s healthcare environment, it’s more important than ever to be able to prove that the interventions in place to treat and prevent pressure injuries are both clinically and cost-effective. With a variety of solutions available, a challenge for clinicians is making the right choice for the patient.This poster presents in-vitro pressure mapping data comparing the pressure redistribution properties of three cushions intended for reducing the incidence of pressure injuries
