Authored by leading wound care clinicians from multiple sites in the US and UK, the study using Biocapacitance of the tissues assessed the sensitivity and specificity of SEM as a biomarker for the development of Pressure Injuries/Ulcers (PI/PU). The study concludes that SEM biocapacitance can complement earlier identification of the risk of developing PI/PU.
