PLAIN LANGUAGE SUMMARY
Devices for reducing the pressure in the treatment of heel pressure ulcers
Pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores, decubitus ulcers and sores stay in bed) are areas of localized damage to the skin and underlying tissue caused by pressure, shear or friction.
Devices to reduce pressure as beds, mattresses, heel supports, splints and pillows are used as part of treatment to reduce or relieve pressure on the úlcera.Se specifically studied heel ulcers because the structure the heel is very different from other body sites that are prone to pressure ulcers (as the sole), and are more prone to diseases (such as poor circulation) irrelevant to other sites where they occur pressure ulcers. A study risk of bias was identified moderate to high. In this study we lost about half of the participants to follow up. Research studies of high quality are needed to inform the selection of the devices to reduce pressure in the treatment of heel pressure ulcers.
