Bruin Biometrics LLC and researchers at UCLA have developed a device for measuring the risk of pressure ulcer formation. The SEM scanner is designed to detect early pressure damage before it becomes visible on the skin surface. The scanner is intended for use in a point of care environment and can wirelessly transmit measured data for storage and analysis. Officially unveiled in April, the scanner is expected to be commercially launched in the coming months.
