Pressure redistribution performance of x-ray table mattresses can influence the development of pressure ulcers in at-risk populations. Interface pressure analysis, with human participants, is a common method to assess mattresses. This approach has limitations that relate to the lack of standardisation between and within humans.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite the addition of five trials, the results of this update are consistent with our earlier review, with the evidence judged to be of low or very low certainty. There remains a lack of robust evaluations of repositioning frequency and positioning for PI prevention and uncertainty about their effectiveness. Since all comparisons were underpowered, there is a high level of uncertainty in the evidence base. Given the limited data from economic evaluations, it remains unclear whether repositioning every three hours using the 30° tilt versus "usual care" (90° tilt) or repositioning 3-to-4-hour...

Pressure ulcers (PU), one of the common challenging public health problems affecting patient with spinal cord injury. PUs occurs over bony areas of the body where pressure and tissue distortion is greatest. It...
Authors: Kawasaki S, Nishimura Y, Kamijo YI, Uenishi H, Nakamura T, Kouda K, Koike Y, Nakamura T, Tajima F Abstract Objective: To determine the relationship between physical findings, wheelchair sitting time, and interface pressure on ischial region in subjects with spinal cord injury (SCI).Design: Cross-sectional study.Setting: Rehabilitation center in Japan.Participants: Manual wheelchair users with chronic SCI (n = 45).Interventions: Pressure ulcers (PU) were diagnosed by inspection, palpation, and ultrasonography. Self-reports were obtained on wheelchair sitting time and pressure mapping was recor...
Soft tissue swelling after trauma with orthopaedic interventions is a crucial challenge for surgeons. Soft tissue swelling can increase wound dehiscence and risk of developing a postoperative infection along with cause a delay in early range of motion [1,2]. Common treatment for post-traumatic soft tissue swelling include use of ice and compression. In 2006, Stannard et al. began applying negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) to open and surgically repaired high-energy fractures with positive clinical benefit [3,4].
