Pressure relief devices are used to prevent or treat pressure sores or pressure ulcers. Bedsores or pressure sores or pressure ulcers are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. Bedsores most often develop on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the heels, ankles, hips and tailbone. This often occurs in bedridden patients, obese people or old people. Body pressure has been recognized as the most important extrinsic factor involved in the development of pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcer can be classified as non-blanchable erythema (stage I), abrasion or a blister (stage II), superficial ulcer (stage III) and deep ulcer (Stage IV). Pressure ulcers can be prevented by a number of support surface devices that include cushions, mattresses, specialty beds and overlays.
