Summary of Research on the Intelli-Gel Cushion
The project involved:
The clinical tests are in agreement and corroborate with the lab tests. The patients involved in the tests were aged between 78 and 96 years, and the Waterlow Score Range was between 19 and 31. Healing of the skin was observed in all patients. In addition, patients and the nursing home staff reported that the Intelli-Gel cushion provided more comfort, improved sitting posture and increased sitting tolerence by an average of 2 hours.
Based on the research undertaken, the Intelli-Gel cushion is likely to be beneficial for individuals at very high risk of developing pressure ulcers, and for those individuals with existing pressure ulcers up to Grade 2.
