ForeSite PT by Xsensor

The ForeSite™ PT patient turn system allows caregivers to continually monitor persistent body pressures that are a primary cause of decubitus ulcers, and provides the information they need to execute an effective patient turn strategy.
How it works

The ForeSite PT system consists of a fitted mattress cover embedded with thousands of sensor cells that continuously measure the patient’s body surface pressures, and a touch screen monitor that displays real-time images of elevated pressures.

ForeSite PT’s software displays pressure markers that clearly identify areas of the body that have been under sustained pressure.
The patient turn clock tracks the time since the last reposition, visually notifying the clinician that it’s time to adjust the patient’s body position.

• May reduce extended hospital stays caused by pressure ulcers
• Provides information staff needs to make informed patient care decisions
• Helps to assure compliance with turn guidelines [1]
• Continuous pressure monitoring can increase patient confidence in quality of care [2]
• Aids in the continuity of care among caregivers
• Easy to use, minimal training required
• No additional documentation or reporting requirements
• Potential to reduce hospital admissions [3]
• May reduce community acquired pressure ulcers [3]
• Could reduce equipment expenditure in the community setting [4]
• Helps to improve pressure ulcer healing rates [3]
