Recommendation 2.6


“Consider using a sub-epidermal moisture/edema measurement device as an adjunct to routine clinical skin assessment”

(Strength of Evidence = B2, Strength of recommendation ↔)

The Science of Sub-epidermal Moisture (SEM)

Elevated levels of SEM is a biomarker of early tissue damage that can lead to pressure ulcer development. SEM can be identified by assessing the biocapacitance of tissue. This non-invasive technology enables early and objective assessment of increased pressure ulcer (PU) risk, empowering you to take decisive action to minimise PU incidence and to help reduce overall cost and time to care.
