Characterization of the Postural Habits of Wheelchair Users Analysis of the Acceptability of International Recommendations in the Prevention of Pressure Sores Risk by Using a Connected Textile Sensor (Es-Alert)

key information

study id #: NCT04335942

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy; Spinal Muscular Atrophy

status: not yet recruiting

purpose:

Spinal cord injuries and people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy or Infant Spinal Muscular Atrophy (ISA) are prone to pain and pressure sores associated with prolonged sitting. For this reason, it is recommended that people with spinal cord injuries release pressure every 15 to 30 minutes and motorized wheelchair users use the electric positioning functions at least 1 minute every hour.

The aim is to prevent and/or reduce pain and pressure sores. These devices could help to observe daily the variability of users’ pressure maps, their impact on occupational performance, the link with pain and redness and could propose customized adjustments.
