Pressure ulcers are areas of soft tissue breakdown resulting from sustained mechanical loading of the skin and underlying tissues. These ulcers are painful, difficult to treat, and represent a burden to the community in terms of health care and money. Currently, pressure ulcer risk assessment is dominated by subjective measures and does not predict pressure ulcer development satisfactorily [1]. Objective measures are therefore needed for early, non-invasive detection.
