Wellsense Unveils First-Ever Bedside Patient Pressure Mapping System Designed to Assist Caregivers in Effectively Repositioning Patients
Date:5/3/2011

CHICAGO, May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- McCormick Place -- Wellsense USA, the pioneer of bedside smart textile technology, unveiled a breakthrough product at this year's National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition sponsored by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) held in Chicago, Illinois from May 2nd through May 5th, 2011.  The M.A.P. System (an acronym for Monitor, Alert and Protect) is the first-ever technology that helps take the guesswork out of repositioning non-ambulatory hospital patients and nursing home residents. There are an estimated 2.5 million new occurrences of pressure ulcers each year, with an estimated cost of treatment of more than $125,000 per instance.  The M.A.P. System is designed as a tool to assist caregivers in preventing pressure ulcers.  

By positioning a "smart" M.A.P. coverlet with built-in pressure sensors over a patient or resident sleep surface, the M.A.P. identifies areas of pressure and produces a color-coded, live image on an easy-to-read bedside monitor.  The System also monitors the buildup of pressure over time at preset intervals; it also alerts the caregivers when a periodic repositioning is due.

Hospitals and nursing homes across the nation increasingly battle the incidence of preventable ulcers with diminishing results.  It is estimated that 1 in 5 ICU patients develop a facility acquired (FA) pressure ulcer.  The real-time M.A.P. and instant feedback mechanisms are invaluable tools for guiding the caregiver through the process of off-loading potentially harmful high pressure points. Since the failure to monitor at-risk patients and implement effective interventions on a timely basis is the leading cause for pressure ulcer development, implementation of the M.A.P. System may provide a solution to this costly problem, potentially saving millions of dollars to an individual healthcare system.  Additionally, the federal government includes press
