Wheelchair users are highly susceptible to deep tissue injury. Interface pressures are unlikely to predict this, and an alternative assessment approach is needed that can easily monitor internal mechanical stresses and deformations.
This review aims to provide clinicians with a comprehensive perspective of the biomechanical aspects of pressure ulceration in wheelchair users.
