Electric muscle stimulation for pressure sore prevention: tissue shape variation.


This study measured changes in tissue shape and deformation at the seating interface produced by electric muscle stimulation (EMS) of the gluteus maximus. The purpose of the study was to investigate the application of EMS for pressure sore prevention. Limitations of pressure measurements for analysis of load distribution are discussed and a rationale… (More)
