Title

A revolution within risk assessment of pressure ulcers – How AI and biooptics can reduce suffering and cost

Speakers/Chairs

  • Johannes Walfridsson, CEO of PU Sensor, Sweden

Description

Reduced microcirculation increases the risk of pressure ulcers but is not visible from the outside. When using today’s methods, 50 % of those who later develop pressure ulcers are not identified. Through clinically adapted bio-optics and AI, it is now possible to find those at increased risk. Then the prevention can be aimed at those who need it most so that pressure ulcers are avoided.

At this workshop, PU sensor is describing how new innovations are used to reduce suffering and save money.

Industry session speakers fixed fee

All speakers must be registered for the conference. Registration, accommodation, and travelling costs must be covered by the company for any invited speaker or chair person.

If the speaker is also an invited speaker at the EPUAP scientific programme or EPUAP Executive Board Member/EPUAP Trustee, the company must pay a fixed fee to EPUAP. The fixed fee covers the speaker’s hotel room for 3 nights, the registration fee, and travel expenses.

The fee is €1,400 for speakers from outside Czechia and €1,100 for speakers from Czechia. If there are more companies inviting the same speaker, the costs will be split evenly between all of them. Companies will be invoiced the fixed fee just before or just after the conference.

EPUAP holds the right to invite speakers until the time of conference and can therefore not provide a full list of speakers during the planning of the event.
