Pressure and Diabetic Foot

Diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a worldwide burden in the management of patients with diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy has a key role in the physiopathology of DFU. Others factors as skin vulnerability to plantar pressure, glycation of skin protein, articular rigidity, vascular component and abnormal foot plantar pressure are also important ...

Phase N/A

Fluid Immersion Simulation (FIS) System Versus Air Fluidized Bed (AFB) System for Pressure Ulcers

Secondary Objectives: Compare the complication rate in each treatment group during the acute postoperative period (2 weeks). Comparisons of the inflammatory and bacterial microbiomes of pressure ulcers following surgical therapy. Comparisons of baseline patient characteristics and their relationship to both early and late pressure ulcer recurrence, and complication rates. Assessment ...

Phase N/A

Interactive Telehealth for Pressure Ulcer Prevention After SCI

Overview and Rationale: Pressure ulcers (PUs) are a frequent and serious secondary complication after SCI with an annual incidence of 31% and a lifetime incidence of up to 85%. PUs are linked to increased morbidity and mortality. As medical or surgical repair of established PUs is difficult and costly, the ...

Phase N/A

Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells (ASC's) and Pressure Ulcers

Wound healing for Stage III and IV pressure ulcers can take four to six weeks or longer and cost upwards of $40,000 to treat. Past studies have shown that adipose tissue contains progenitor cells or regenerative cells that can release multiple angiogenic growth factors and cytokines including vascular endothelial growth ...


Pressure and Temperature Sensor for Therapeutic Compression Garments

Assessment of safety, and preliminary accuracy of a pressure and temperature sensor adherent to the skin. The pressure sensor includes a piezoresistive fabric coupled to a near-field communication chip with a built-in temperature sensor.

Phase N/A

Correlation Between Pressure Differences and Micro-vascularization Changes in Bedridden Paraplegic Patient

Paraplegic patients have defective wound healing for sore below the level of spinal lesion. Defect of vascularization of the healing zone certainly participate to this effect. Therefore, this study want to measure, in a clinical settings, the interface pressure (e.g. the pressure between the patient body and the surface he/she ...

Phase N/A

Pressure Ulcers in Patients Receiving Enteral Nutrition Therapy and Their Relationship With Gut Microbiota

Participants will be randomly assigned to the experimental group where they will be given enteral nutrition formula rich in zinc and arginine plus a symbiotic (Probinul- Ca.Di.GROUP S.r.l.) once a day for 90 days or the control group where they will receive only the enteral nutrition formula rich in zinc ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection of Pressure Induced Tissue Damage by Infrared Spectroscopy (ODP) Device

During pressure injuries formation early sub dermal bio signal appear. By applying infrared spectroscopy at a suspicions injury site on the human body and obtaining a reflected infrared light infrared allows to determine early formation of a pressure injury/

Phase N/A

Negative Pressure Vs. Compression in Venous Ulcers

Venous ulcers are characterised by a cyclical pattern of healing and recurrence, with recurrence rates between 45 and 70% at one year. Venous leg ulceration has been identified as a common source of morbidity and reduced quality of life, especially in the elderly population. Non-healing ulcers place the patient at ...

Phase N/A

An RCT on Support Surfaces for Pressure Ulcer Prevention

Pressure injuries are a serious health care problem and threaten the health and well-being of millions of people. Most pressure injuries are avoidable with the application of standard practices and proper utilization of existing technology. Support surface technology has been shown to prevent pressure injuries, but the effectiveness of specific ...
