BBI’s SEM Scanner receives a Medtech Innovation Briefing from NICE

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

The SEM Scanner objectively alerts clinicians to specific anatomical areas of a patient’s body at increased risk for developing pressure damage, meaning patient risk assessments are performed before visible damage manifests at the skin surface – a world and clinical first.

"I'm delighted to hear that a Medtech Innovation Briefing has been issued by NICE on the SEM Scanner in support of the prevention of pressure ulcers. This is such an important issue that is not always front of mind, so it is pleasing to see the challenges of pressure ulcer prevention being addressed.”
