What is the SEM Scanner™:
The SEM Scanner™ is a wound assessment device intended to provide information that health care professionals can utilize as an adjunct to the current standard of care for the early indication of pressure-induced tissue damage, such as pressure ulcers and Deep Tissue Injury (DTI). The SEM Scanner™ uses integrated sensor technology to assess the presence of sub-epidermal moisture by emitting a low amplitude alternating current into the dermis.
- Hand-held, portable
- Objective measurements
- Non-invasive, rapid results
- Easy-to-use by all practitioners
Introduction of the SEM Scanner™ into Clinical Workflow:
The SEM Scanner™ fits seamlessly into existing habits and rituals of clinical workflows. Optimal use of the SEM Scanner™ is accomplished in the following manner:
- Upon admission during initial clinical assessments
- Throughout length of stay during routine skin assessment
- Upon discharge from the healthcare facility
The current standard of care in pressure ulcer prevention is based on visual assessment, which focuses on areas where pressure ulcers most commonly develop: the sacrum, trochanters, and heels. Unfortunately, the quality of visual skin inspection is highly dependent on the skill of the caregiver: wide and varying results are common. By the time pressure-induced tissue damage is visually evident at the skin’s surface, significant damage has already occurred.
The SEM Scanner™ offers solutions to these well-documented challenges in standard practice. Bruin Biometrics is delighted to put the power of information from the SEM Scanner™ – the 6th vital sign – in the hands of caregivers to help make pressure ulcer prevention possible.
