The ForeSite® OR is a continuous skin monitoring system used by clinicians to improve safety of patient positioning in the operating room and reduce the risk of pressure-related surgical complications.
Without monitoring, patients immobilized during prolonged surgical procedures can experience pressure injuries to skin and nerves. These injuries can cause serious complications requiring extended hospital stays. Proactive positioning and monitoring is the key to prevention.
Prevention of Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPIs) remains a crucial clinical challenge especially for those patients undergoing surgery. Pressure injury development in the operating room accounts for up to 45% of all HAPIs.
ForeSite OR’s integrated sensing layer redistributes peak pressures that can cause tissue damage and provides support where pressures build up.
Track body surface pressures in real-time in the operating room.
ForeSite OR’s sensors generate and record real-time images of the body surface pressures that surgical staff can use as part of their preoperative positioning, during, and post-operative plans to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers.
Specifications & Performance
The ForeSite OR pressure measuring system is fully enclosed within the OR cushion cover for simple cleaning and sterilization.
The easy-to-use application provides high-resolution, real-time pressure images and pressure measurements. The system runs on a touchscreen and connects via wireless Bluetooth® to the ForeSite pressure sensors. Surface pressure data for surgical procedures can be saved to provide a record for continued patient care or future reference.
Data can then be collected to evaluate the effectiveness of procedures or to support clinical research. OR pad usage is tracked to provide for the management of replacement cycles.
Integrated reliable pressure sensors measure with ±5% accuracy and do not need to be recalibrated.
Pressure sensors provide superior image quality with 0.5” sensing points (torso size sensor).
ForeSite OR software’s high-resolution images clearly show the elevated pressures.
Touchscreen display, pre-installed software, and wireless sensor are hassle-free.
Easy-to-use software makes it quick to configure for multiple cushions.
