This section focuses on the research completed to develop the SEM assessment technology foundational science and mode of operation. Including how SEM assessment technology identifies increased risk of PI/U and how to treat a high SEM (∆) delta as a stage/category 1 PI/U to prevent them from further deterioration.
Gershon, S., Okonkwo, H. 2021. Journal of Wound Care
Aim: To evaluate the ability of an objective test, the SEM, to discriminate between subjects with confirmed PI/U with intact skin versus those with no pressure damage.
Bryant, R. A. et al. 2021. Expert Review of Medical Devices
Aim: This is a comprehensive review of SEM technology from a device, safety and efficacy perspective; while it does not add new data for the first time this review brings together all the relevant data into one publication.
Byrne, S. et al. 2022. International Wound Journal
Aim: This study aimed to investigate the impact of sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) measurement and targeted PI/U prevention, versus visual skin assessment and usual care, on mean SEM delta scores and early PI/U development in acute hospital patients.
Martins de Oliveira, A. L. et al. 2022. Journal of Wound Care
Aim: To compare the predictive ability of sub-epidermal moisture (SEM) measurement versus traditional risk assessment and visual skin assessment (VSA) as means of detecting early PI/U damage development among adults undergoing surgery.
