Friction characteristics of preventative wound dressings under clinically‐relevant conditions dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-12-15)
Wound dressings can be used prophylactically or during actual treatment. Preventative dressings have become a standard of care to prevent pressure ulcers in patients while in bed. While the mechanism of the preventative ...
Assessment of the ISO Impact Damping Test
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012)
The ISO impact damping test characterizes wheelchair cushion abilities to reduce impact loading on issues and to help maintain postural stability, reporting the number of rebounds greater than ...
Buttock tissue response to loading in men with SCI dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-01-26)
Objective/Background: Despite the fact that most people with a spinal cord injury who use a wheelchair for mobility are considered at-risk for pressure ulcer (PrU) development, there still exists a spectrum of risk amongst ...
Video: Skeletal Displacement and Shear Strain Example During Head of Bed Elevation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019)
This realtime MRI video demonstrates the caudal displacement of the spine relative to the skin when the head of the bed is elevated 30 degrees. Friction with the sheets keeps the skin from slipping. This video is a great ...
Clinical Application of Pressure Mapping
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
Study on Alleviation Pressure Cushion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-06)
The alleviation pressure (AP) cushion is a dynamic cushion system with three bladders at the pelvic region. The bladders can be deflated and inflated in a certain sequence to relieve the pressure on the ischial ...
Clinical Usability of a Wound Measurement Device
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010)
Monitoring wound size is an integral component to the assessment and treatment of chronic wounds. Conventional methods, such as ruler measures and transparency tracings, for measuring wound size often have low accuracy and ...
Non-Invasive Erythema Detection Using Spectral Imaging
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
Erythema, or skin redness, seen after prolonged pressure application is a precursor to pressure ulcers. These occur in people with limited mobility and sensation including the elderly and people with SCI. Erythema is masked ...
