Under the current background of unbalanced medical resources, it is not easy to help patients receive homogeneous treatment, comfortable treatment and precise treatment. The elderly are especially the main population of chronic wounds. At the same time, people with incontinence and dementia are also prone to chronic wounds.

Pressure injuries, also known as pressure ulcers. The main reason for its formation is that the skin tissue is under pressure for a long time, and it occurs in patients with long-term bedridden and paraplegic mobility disorders. The lesions may be intact skin or open wounds, and may be accompanied by pain.


At present, many patients or their family members do not fully understand the causes and hazards of pressure ulcers, and most of them do not take corresponding preventive measures, which makes pressure ulcers getting more serious. Use silicone foam dressing with border to protect skin at risk of pressure injury.
