Falling pressure mapping costs leading to wider clinical applications

Technical developments over the last 20+ years have meant that pressure mapping has become a regular tool for everyday clinicians, as a result of lower costs and simpler, more instinctive operation. The seminar emphasises what pressure mapping tells us not only about potential risks to the patient’s health from the side effects of pressure, but also applications for managing balance and other physiological functions as well.
