Cedar successful in bid for Health Foundation Funding


Cedar is collaborating with Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust on a study called PROMISE which has received funding from the Health Foundation
Many people with high levels of frailty and underlying health conditions develop pressure ulcers and these can be difficult to manage in community settings without access to specialist support. This project will explore whether monitoring and adjusting pressures using mattress and chair sensors in patients’ homes, and in residential and nursing homes, can alleviate discomfort and reduce pressure damage. Cedar will be evaluating the PROMISE study. PROMISE stands for "pressure reduction through continuous monitoring in community settings (PROMISE): reducing and preventing avoidable and unavoidable pressure ulcers". We are looking forward to working on this exciting project.
