Pressure injuries have been reported across all healthcare settings, affecting all age groups and are costly in terms of quality of life and healthcare resources. Pressure ulcers develop when persistent pressure on a bony site obstructs healthy capillary flow leading to tissue necrosis. This typically occurs over a bony prominence but can occur in any situation where blood flow to the skin is impeded. Alternating pressure-redistributing support surfaces impersonates spontaneous body movement by repeatedly and automatically, off-loading the tissue by means of inflating and deflating sections of the mattress or cushion.
