Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pressure sores in the sitting paraplegic patient can delay rehabilitation by weeks or months, or can lead to the patient's permanent confinement to bed. This paper describes a method of redistributing the pressure loading on the sitting area so that pressure sores are unlikely to occur. In addition, a clinical approach which increases the patient's awareness of the problem is outlined and case histories and clinical results are described.
