World’s first bedsore monitoring system

ISRAEL21C: Hospitals across the United States are installing the Israeli-devised MAP (Monitor Alert Protect) system – the world’s first continuous bedside monitoring device to display, in real time, where a patient is developing high-pressure points that lead to bedsores.

MAP consists of a pressure-sensing mat that sits on top of the bed, wired to a monitor that provides color-coded visual feedback for repositioning patients so that pressure points on the body are consistently rotated. The system can be customized for each facility and even for each patient.

Watch how it works here.
