A Resource-Efficient Turning Schedule for Bed-Bound Patients
Bed-bound patients need to be regularly repositioned to prevent excessive pressure on a single area of body, which can lead to pressure ulcers. Our main contribution in this research was: (1) Ulcer risk assessment for different regions of skin based on pressure; (2) Posture-pressure model development to predict risk; (3) Optimal turning schedule that minimizes nursing effort while keeping ulcer risk at an acceptable level.
