We partner with our customers to develop comprehensive strategies and deliver strategic product solutions for reducing pressure, shear, friction, and moisture for patients and residents.

Defining the 4 factors that can lead to pressure injuries

When caring for at-risk patients, frontline staff should be considering all the contributing factors of pressure injuries. These important reminders help busy caregivers select the right interventions to keep patients safe.

Prolonged pressure

Immobility can put constant, localized force on bony areas that can lead to injury.

Prolonged pressure


When skin is pulled across a surface, it injures the outer layer of the skin.



Skin that is pushed in opposite directions can damage deep layers of tissue.


Moisture management

Too little moisture or too much can weaken skin integrity.
