What is pressure mapping?
A pressure map is a computerized clinical tool for assessing pressure distribution. To use it, you place a thin, sensor mat on a wheelchair seat or a mattress surface. When your patient sits or lies on the mat, a computer screen displays a map of pressures, using colors, numbers, and a graphic image of the patient. Typically, the hotter colors (the reds) indicate areas of higher pressures, and the cooler colors (the blues) indicate areas of lower pressures. The display usually has several options, including a three-dimensional display of peak pressure areas and a statistical analysis.
