Research to Prevent Pressure Ulcers

Research to Prevent Pressure Ulcers

Researchers at Georgia Tech, who are interested in developing technology to help wheelchair users monitor their skin as a way to prevent pressure ulcers.The system would monitor how long you are seated, how often you perform weight shifts and the pressures or forces on your buttocks. Other measurements may also be possible such as the temperature of your buttocks.
This short survey is for wheelchair users and will be used as a means to collect thoughts and opinions about this new technology. This is an anonymous survey so no personal or identifiable information will be collected. The survey has 17 questions and should take about 7 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or would like additional information, you may send an email to rearlab [at] gatech.edu
