Throughout our therapeutic relationship with you, we will analyze your equipment, support surfaces (e.g., wheelchair seating, bed/mattress) and lifestyle/activities, to minimize your risk of developing pressure-related injuries or skin breakdown. Our occupational therapists are skilled in identifying strategies and recommendations to assist with treating the cause of pressure injuries should they occur.
In the event that you have a pressure injury our therapists can help by doing an assessment of what may have caused the injury. We consider 24-hour pressure management and postural care as it relates to your wounds. This mean that we look at all surfaces that you come into contact with, your positioning in and on these surfaces and help you to problem solve options for management.
