Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers are a medical complication that require constant management and left unchecked, will cause infections and long spells of bed rest.  The Stoke Mandeville Masson Research Award will explore the benefits of electrostimulation-induced muscle activation to prevent pressure ulcers in people with spinal cord injury.  The collaboration will take place between the Cardiovascular Science research group at the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University in close collaboration with Stoke Mandeville Hospital, the VU University Amsterdam, and Reade rehabilitation centre in Amsterdam.
