Abstract

For immobile patients, pressure sores are one of the most severe diseases. In this study, we examined the skin temperature under pressure loading and relief by animal experiments. The results, it was obtained that the skin temperature of the ischemic area were changed due to the same pressure loading and relief in the different constant ambient temperature. It is necessary to prevent pressure sores are not only the pressure relief but to analyze the skin temperature under the pressure loading and relief.
