Hospital-acquired pressure injury prevention
In a 399-patient randomized, controlled trial, with high-risk inpatients, the TurnCare Guardian System showed an 81% decrease in sacral, hospital-acquired pressure injuries when compared to pressure redistribution beds.
2 vs. 11 sacral hospital-acquired pressure injuries
Full-thickness pressure injury healing
The Guardian System has been shown in multiple cases to promote a positive healing trajectory for full thickness wounds.
Stage 2 pressure injury healing
In a historical control study, the Guardian System helped heal pressure injuries 60% faster than the standard of care alone in the long-term care setting.
10.5 vs. 26.25 days on average to complete healing
