Research project

Combining physiological sensing and biomarkers with intelligent support surfaces for closed loop prevention of chronic wounds

Project overview

The proposed research aims to provide an early detection system allied to an intelligent prevention strategy for pressure ulcer prevention, which will be evaluated with small cohorts of at-risk individuals. New and existing sensing technologies will provide distinct thresholds of physiological parameters, particularly involving CO2 sensing and biomarker concentrations, which could inform the effectiveness of both preventative measures and therapeutic interventions.
