Dressings are used to manage adequately pressure in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. In this project, we wanted to determine the effect of the dressings on the foot pressures.


Results

After the testing, walking or barefoot with a constant velocity or with different dressings, a reduction of the maximum pressure in the heel of 42% and almost 25% in the forefoot was noticeable. The test were performed with the Biofoot/IBV device that measures plantar pressures.
