New Trial: Continuous Pressure Imaging for Safer and Better Care: using technology to prevent pressure ulcer development.

This article examines how interface pressure is a key risk factor in the development of pressure ulcers. Visual feedback of continuous interface pressure between the body and support surface could inform clinicians on repositioning strategies and play a key role in an overall strategy for the prevention and management of pressure ulcers.

This trial is with the support of W21C Research and Innovation Centre, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, and Alberta Health Services.
