Pressure Ulcers are one of the costliest and physically debilitating medical condition happening to a bedridden patient. Pressure Ulcers also known as bed sores, are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. The Gold standard of care recommended is to reposition the patient every 2 hourly to shift pressure acting on the body. But the fact is more than 85 percentage of the caretakers who do a repositioning have musculoskeletal disorders and 97 percentage of the patients don't receive a 2-hourly repositioning as a result of which they develop pressure ulcers. Once the pressure ulcer occurs, the cost of treatment is really high. The available existing solutions fail to substantially relieve the pressure, because of which pressure ulcer still remains to be one of the major problems that needs to be solved.
