Pressure Relief Devices Market Factors- Rising Aging Population and Increasing Rate of Obesity
Body pressure is one of the most important extrinsic factors involved in the development phase of pressure ulcers. A pressure ulcer is a localized injury to the skin or an underlying tissue resulting from an outside mechanical load. As per The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP), pressure ulcers are classified into four types, namely, stage I, stage II, stage III, and stage IV. The stage IV (deep ulcer) is the most vital pressure ulcer that in many cases creates emergency medical conditions. Many support surface devices such as cushions, overlays, and mattresses can be used to prevent pressure ulcers.
