SEM Scanner Overview

The New Standard in Pressure Ulcer Risk Assessment

The SEM Scanner  is intended to be used by healthcare professionals as an adjunct to the standard of care when assessing the heels and sacrum of patients who are at increased risk for pressure ulcers.

Interpretation of the ∆ Symbol:

  • < 0.6 at an anatomical site may suggest the tissue is at lower risk for pressure ulcers
  • ≥ 0.6 at an anatomical site may suggest increased risk for pressure ulcers

Developed by one of the world's leading wound care experts for use by clinicians.
