Pressure Injuries

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

Annually, an average 160-bed hospital will incur $6,000,000 in losses, 911 days added to LOS and 16.4 deaths attributed to avoidable PIs. Wounds 2019; 31(5):123-126. 

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