What is Pressure Mapping?
Pressure mapping is the display and visualization of the pressures where two surfaces meet. This allows medical professionals to obtain accurate pressure data between the patient’s body and their seating/sleeping surfaces. This allows you to position patients in the right equipment and in the right position knowing exactly how their pressure is placed.
Why use pressure mapping?
Pressure mapping helps medical professionals quickly identify where a client may develop pressure injuries. When a client is at risk of pressure injuries pressure mapping helps the professionals to selected the appropriate seating and night time equipment to provide the necessary protection against pressure injuries. Pressure injuries are a serious risk to clients and will cause great discomfort and have a negative impact on their health. We can together work towards prevention by doing pressure mapping and prescribing the right equipment, before the pressure injuries appear.
