Dear Subscribers,

Christian Gammelgaard Olesen, Aalborg University, will be giving a free webcast presentation on Wednesday Dec. 1 on:

"Pressure ulcer research from seated posture to buttock tissue strain".
Pressure ulcers are a frequent complication to spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. It is well acknowledged that sustained mechanical loading of the soft tissues causes pressure ulcers. When sitting on a chair, support forces are acting between the buttocks and the chair. Posture changes cause changes in these forces and thereby to the loads transferred through the soft tissue and into the bony prominences. The soft tissue is strained by the loading, which causes ulceration and, when the load is sustained, a pressure ulcer. This webcast will demonstrate how an AnyBody model can predict the influence of posture on the support forces and consequently contribute to prevention of pressure ulcers.

To cater for attendees in different time zones, we are running this webinar at the following times. Join the session which is the most convenient for you:

1st show: Berlin 9:00/9AM = Beijing 16:00/4PM = Tokyo 17:00/5PM = Sydney 19:00/7PM.
