Electric shock therapy reduces pressure ulcers

Source: Alberta Innovates - Health Solutions

Spotted in Springwise, what seems like a fairly extreme solution; this new concept electrocutes patients every few minutes to stop them having pressure ulcers. Humorous imagery aside, pressure ulcers and bed sores are a huge issue for long term care, so this alternative approach with its cute name - which only emits painless stimulation of the blood vessels - is a welcome addition to the discussion. I can see this functionality potentially being added to beds and pyjamas around the world, as the ROI of avoiding bed sores is very high.
