BodiTrak MONITOR


BodiTrak Monitor is an easy to use, stretchable, top of bed, patient pressure and shear monitoring system. It assists caregivers in identifying and managing areas on a patient's skin where they may be experiencing high pressures and shear forces. It's a powerful tool to help prevent tissue trauma, increase patient comfort, monitor support surface performance and educate caregivers. The software also includes a time-to-turn indicator with selectable time periods. Easily access the Pressure, Risk and Gradient information with an attached tablet or wirelessly, on a smart mobile device. BodiTrak provides the caregiver essential information for improving patient care and reducing the expense of healing wounds.

  • Takes the guesswork out of wound prevention.
  • Displays real time pressures.
  • Identifies areas of high risk.
  • Shows where shear forces may be present.

The Pressure tab displays a real time pressure map of the patient. Caregivers observe their patient's current position and pressures, using the system to reposition the patient with instant feedback. This real time feedback helps them find positions that achieve a better pressure redistribution. BodiTrak Monitor also helps the caregiver choose and adjust the appropriate support surface. Additionally, the system is a useful tool for training caregivers in effective patient repositioning strategies.

The Risk tab quickly helps caregivers understand where the patient's skin may be most at risk. BodiTrak highlights where the skin may experience trauma, using software based on the Reswik Rogers time/pressure curve. The Risk tab illustrates the aggregate of time and pressure, helping caregivers focus their attention on where the patient is most at risk of developing a wound. BodiTrak displays how high pressures have been and how long they have been high at a particular location on the body.

The Gradient tab identifies areas of the skin that may be affected by shear forces. Gradient is an expression of how pressure changes from one location to another across the patient's skin. It is calculated in mmHg/cm and warmer colors indicate rapid changes where shear forces may be negatively affecting the skin.
