An important study carried out at an NHS Foundation Trust was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Nursing:

Evaluating the impact on hospital acquired pressure injury/ulcer incidence in a United Kingdom NHS Acute Trust from use of sub-epidermal scanning technology.

697 patients were scanned daily using SEM Scanning Technology for, on average, eight days over a six-month period, resulting in a 81% PI/PU incidence reduction across all four wards involved in the study – a statistically significant difference (p=.011) compared to PI/PU incidence rates prior to the study commencing.1

The study concluded that:

“This pragmatic clinical study at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital met its primary end point in demonstrating that SEM scanning is an effective adjunct to the existing SoC in support of the prevention of PI/PU…SEM data can be readily integrated into routine clinical care in support of clinical decision-making.” 1
