Life/form® Elderly Pressure Ulcer Foot. Chronic foot ulcers most often affect the elderly. Life/form has designed the Life/form® Elderly Pressure Ulcer Foot for teaching the care and cleaning of pressure ulcers in various stages. Pressure ulcers are more likely to appear over pressure points such as heels, tips of toes, between toes, or anywhere the bones may protrude and rub against socks, shoes, or bed sheets. This replica contains all four severity stages:
- Stage 1 - Located on the bottom of the toe. The surface of the skin is red.
- Stage 2 - Located on the bottom of the foot just under the toe. The surface of the skin is red and deeper into the skin layers.
- Stage 3 - Located on the side of the foot. The surface of the skin is red, looks more like a crater, and reaches the bottom layer of the skin.
- Stage 4 - Located on the heel of the foot. The surface of the skin is red. A great amount of tissue has been damaged, including muscle, bone, joints, and tendons.
The Life/form® Elderly Pressure Ulcer Foot includes a foot and instruction key card. Measures 9-1/2 in. x 4 in. Five-year warranty.
