M.A.P. System (Monitor, Alert and Protect)
Pressure mapping system assists caregivers in repositioning patients
Wellsense USA's M.A.P. System (an acronym for Monitor, Alert
and Protect) is designed as
a tool to assist caregivers in
preventing pressure ulcers.
By positioning a "smart"
M.A.P. coverlet with builtin
pressure sensors over
a patient or resident sleep
surface, the system identifies areas of pressure and
produces a color-coded, live
image on an easy-to-read bedside
monitor. The system also monitors the
buildup of pressure over time at preset
intervals and alerts the caregiver when a periodic
repositioning is due.
