The Importance of Pressure Mapping

Pressure mapping is an essential tool for complex seating evaluation and scripting. It provides information that a patient often can’t provide regarding the pressure distribution of their seating surface when seated in their current chair. Identifying pressure points or areas through mapping can be vital in the identification and control of issues such as persistent pressure injury, poor sensation and poor tissue integrity.

Whilst pressure mapping normally confirms predicted or pre-diagnosed issues, it also importantly reveals the unobvious and is therefore often integral in determining the correct seating specification and configuration. Furthermore, a pressure mapping report can add significant weight to an application for a premium seating solution, ensuring the optimum client result.
