Sumed is delighted to continue to support Peninsula Community Health who have been selected by the Health Foundation, an independent health care charity, to be part of its £1.5 million innovation programme, Innovating for Improvement.
The initiative from Peninsula Community Health aims to improve pressure damage detection in the community using continuous pressure monitoring of patients. Focusing on older people living in the community, this project will use innovative continuous pressure monitoring technology to identify pressure hot spots much earlier and so prevent actual damage occurring. Through this, it will be possible to determine whether pressure ulcer risk can be self-managed by the patient.
The team will be led by Nicci Aylward-Wotton, community-based Tissue Viability Lead for Peninsula Community Health. Nicci said “We’re thrilled to be part of the Health Foundation’s Innovating for Improvement programme and we can’t wait to get started!”
