Abstract

An intelligent remote monitoring and caution system was designed and developed for prevention of pressure ulcer. The developed system uses a ZigBee network infrastructure with pressure sensors to monitor pressured positions for mobility-impaired persons on the bed. The main purpose of this study is intended to increase ulcer prevention awareness, and to facilitate the fulfillment of pressure ulcer management procedures. With the support of the developed system, the incidence of pressure ulcers can be controlled, which will increase both the quality of healthcare and life quality of the patient with impaired mobility who are hospitalized or stay in long-term care facilities.
