Pressure ulcers have posed a longstanding challenge in patient care, but SoreAlert's electronic patch marks a significant leap forward in prevention. SoreAlert helps prevent pressure ulcers with a smart and discreet electronic patch that monitors patients' skin conditions.
Pressure ulcers, or bedsores, can develop when a patient with pre-existing conditions damages their skin through prolonged application of pressure, most commonly body weight. SoreAlert continuously monitors skin health status and sends an alert when a risk pattern is detected via AI algorithms. This allows caretakers to take immediate action and completely prevent the development of pressure ulcers.
The patch can be applied to various at-risk areas of the body and comprises multiple sensors to measure tissue perfusion, which is closely related to skin health.
It also includes electronics such as a microprocessor, a small battery, and a wireless transmitter to operate autonomously, notifying the patient or caretaker only when interaction is required. Everything is packaged as thin and unobtrusive as possible to minimize patient discomfort.
As we look to the future, SoreAlert's commitment to innovation and patient well-being holds great promise for revolutionizing healthcare as we know it. Visit SoreAlert for more information.
