Thread: I got pressure mapped the other day?

    I got pressure mapped the other day?

    I still have a sore on my thigh back gets better and worse and better and worse. I've been using a Roho Hybrid Elite which is the mix of the Roho cushion around my ischiums and the Jay bottom for the rest of it. It's very customizable and we had it set up where there was very little pressure in the area where my sore is. It always mapped pretty good but lately I think it leaks. I went back to my PT a few days ago to try out another Roho High-Profile Quattro. This is what it looked like:

    I don't think it gets any better than that and that's in my manual chair. Woo hoo. Finally, it's awesome.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    Thanks guys. Maybe someone can put that picture is a sticky so people understand what pressure mapping is. I've had some bad ones to but I'm not sure if I've taken pictures. Hopefully one of the nurses sees this

    Here is an example of a not very good pressure map of the buttocks. You can see the mapping pad under the man's buttocks (the blue pad between him and the cushion). The bright red areas have very high pressures, with pressures descending through yellow, green, dark blue, and light blue. The bright red areas on this map are the ischial tuberosities (sitting bones):
