shearing wounds

The best way to diminish the risk shear wounds is to make sure that the patient is sitting in a upright position. Take care that the patient can’t glide to a half-sitting position, a major concern which in many cases leads to a shear wound.


Use a proper lifting technique to move the patient. Make sure you lift the patient properly; do not try to lift the patient by tearing him into a new position.

Apply a soft silicone dressing with ReSkin technology over the area at risk to protect the skin. Thanks to the bi-elasticity of the soft silicone dressing with ReSkin technology, shear force will be spread all over the dressing. The risk of shear wounds diminishes significantly.
