Analyzers, Physiologic, Body Pressure Distribution

Definition : Physiologic analyzers designed to determine the area of contact and evaluate the pressure exerted by the whole body or part of it when lying or sitting on a surface. These analyzers typically include sensors to determine the contour of the area of contact and the pressure existing at each point of the interface between the body and the resting surface (e.g., chair, table, bed), an electronic unit to process the information, and a display typically showing in a colored map the areas of contact and the pressure values for each contact point. Body pressure distribution analyzers are used to determine high-pressure areas, determine abnormal positioning of the body while resting on a surface, facilitate selection of appropriate support surfaces and/or cushions, and help in the treatment and prevention of decubitus ulcers. Dedicated analyzers intended to measure the pressure on the body surface while sitting are also available.
