Tissue Interface Pressure and Estimated Subcutaneous Pressures of 11 Different Pressure-Reducing Support Surfaces
The pilot study examined the pressure-reducing properties of 11 different pressure-reducing devices as compared to a standard hospital mattress.
Recent testing by an American Heart Association CPR instructor demonstrated successful CPR on the ROHO Dry Floatation System using a Recording Resusci AnneTM mannequin.
Restoring mobility to the individual who has lost this function may be the most important contribution that can be made toward rehabilitation. If the mobility solution requires a wheelchair then it also requires an effective cushion.
Comparison of Capillary Blood Flow Using a Regular Hospital Bed Mattress, ROHO Mattress and Madiscus Bed
Pressure sores continue to present serious problems in the management and rehabilitation of the acute and chronically ill.
Recurrence of pressure ulcers is a serious problem following myocutaneous flap surgery and can lead to prolonged and expensive hospitalization. One of the most important aspects of patient care after surgery is the monitoring of reduced pressure in the area of the flap.

The Effect of Implementation of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research’s Prevention of Pressure Ulcer Guidelines on Nurses’ Knowledge, Incidence and Cost of Development in a Tertiary Care Setting
Pressure ulcers are serious wounds that cause pain, suffering, disability and sometimes death. The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) estimated in 1989 that over one million people suffer from pressure ulcers each year.
Guidelines for preventing sitting-acquired pressure ulcers (PUs) repeatedly recommend the use of soft and thick cushions designed for distributing buttocks- support loads, particularly on wheelchairs. Recently, it was suggested that contoured foam cushions (CFCs) which fit the individual’s buttocks shape could provide good efficacy since they create large buttocks-cushion contact areas .
Each year, NEPDC partners with parents, clinicians, and advocacy groups to select a significant pediatric medical need and issues a Target Challenge to identify and solicit novel device concepts from academic and clinical institutions, industry, and the general public.
