    Enhancing Skin Health and Reducing Pressure Injuries

    The skin acts as a critical barrier against infections and injuries, highlighting the essential need for maintaining its health and integrity. In the context of patients with limited mobility or those who are bedridden, the risk of developing pressure injuries, commonly referred to as bedsores, significantly increases. These injuries not only compromise skin integrity but can also lead to severe medical complications.
