“Pressure Mapping or pressure imaging is a capacitive technology used by the technicians at Mobility Plus to clearly and accurately measure interface pressure. This device allows clinicians and clients to view precise, high-resolution representations of bodily pressure distributions on a screen. We can show clinicians, using objective measurements, how positioning, support materials and alterations to them can impact on a client’s circulation, skin surface integrity and well-being.
The techniques can also be applied to the lying position to see how pressure affects the sleeping or bed-ridden client. With the extensive range of different cushions available at Mobility Plus, including the Symmetrisleep night positioning system, the prescribed cushion material, style and contouring for seat and back is always achievable with the help of our experienced and knowledgeable team.
