The Science of Sub-Epidermal Moisture


Download The Science of Sub-Epidermal Moisture Clinical Evidence Summary


Discover the role of Sub-Epidermal Moisture (SEM) in Pressure Injury development, and how SEM scanning technology enables you to perform early and objective assessment of PI risk 5 days*1 earlier than visual skin assessment, regardless of skin tone2, securing a window of opportunity for you to deploy a targeted intervention strategy that helps to reduce the incidence of Hospital Acquired Pressure Injuries (HAPIs).
