The ForeSite PT, a patient turn system, allows caregivers to continually monitor persistent body pressures which are a primary cause of decubitus ulcers.  This sensor provides the information needed to execute an effective patient turn strategy.



How it works

The ForeSite PT system comes with a fitted mattress cover that is embedded with thousands of sensor cells that continuously measure a patient's body surface pressures, and a touch screen monitor that displays real-time images of elevated pressures. ForeSite PT software displays pressure markers that clearly identify areas of the body that have been under sustained pressure. The patient turn clock tracks the time since the last reposition, visually notifying the clinician that it's time to adjust a patient's body position.
