Three-dimensional scalar pressure distributions were measured in solid tissue near bony prominences in vitro in meat and in vivo in pigs using silicon pressure sensors. Data are in accord with previous theoretical models and indicate that pressure is three to five times higher internally near a bony prominence than it is at the skin over the prominence. Pressure sores are thus thought to begin internally; by the time they are evident at the skin, the sore has worked its way completely from bone… CONTINUE READING
