LEAF Pressure Ulcer Prediction

The LEAF System came to the attention of the Lab through an email from the sales representative to Dr. Bruce Hall in May 2021. Published clients include Mayo, Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, Centra Specialty Hospital, John Peter Smith Hospital, and Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian. Smith+Nephew offers educational support before, during, and after a pilot and/or implementation. There is no charge for the system equipment, infrastructure, installation, training, support, or data reporting. BJC would be responsible for the development of a protocol to use Leaf for high-risk HAPI patients, the development of success criteria, and then purchase of sensors for pilot period ($200/each). Any future use would not require volume or term commitments.
