The Burden of Bedsore
More than 1.7 million elderly people in Germany and more than 4 million in Europe are at high risk of developing painful, long-lasting pressure ulcers (wounds that occur in immobile people)!
Over 100,000 caregivers in Germany are dedicated to pressure ulcer prevention alone, which means they cannot care for unavoidable conditions!
Annual treatment costs exceed €2 billion in Germany and $27 billion in the USA.
The current cost of prevention in Europe is estimated at €20 billion.
