The Wounds Canada Virtual 2020 Fall Conference took place on October 15 to 18, 2020, and Curiato was pleased to present our second ever poster presentation. The poster was written by an esteemed panel of healthcare practitioners featuring Kevin Woo, PhD, RN, NSWOCC WOCC FAPWCA as the lead author. In this poster, we discuss our findings related to posture detection for pressure injury prevention from our initial trial conducted at Toronto Grace Health Centre.
“The smart bed itself allows staff to be able to make changes to patient positioning or changes as a result of pressure, moisture or temperature as they need to. And this is important because the current standard is to turn the patient every two to four hours. The technology allows staff to be able to turn the patients when they need to.”
