Rehabtronics is inviting applications for free 90-day Quality Improvement trials of Prelivia at qualified healthcare facilities in the United States. Contact us today to learn more.

Prelivia is also part of the Protect2 multicentered randomized controlled study to further validate its effectiveness in decreasing progression and facilitating healing of pressure injuries. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation is currently recruiting participants.

Prelivia is Painless and Provides Protection Continuously

To safeguard a patient from pressure injuries (bed sores), it takes a caregiver only minutes to apply and activate Prelivia. Simply place Prelivia pads onto the patient’s at-risk areas. Our proprietary electrodes, deliver intermittent electrical stimulation to the tissue once activated with a wireless stimulator device. Tissue stimulation is painless for the patient.

Unlike other systems that deliver electrical impulses, Prelivia delivers stimulation continuously without fatiguing muscles. Since there are no time restrictions, Prelivia can be used 24/7 to keep tissue healthy in bedridden and chair-bound patients.

Avoid Costs

Average cost of treating one instance of a pressure injury is $20,000.

Shorten Hospital Stays

Patients stay 2-4 days longer when suffering from a hospital-acquired injury.

Reducing Nurse Time

Nurses spend 50% more time treating pressure injuries. Prelivia takes less than 12 minutes per shift.

How is Prelivia Better Than Current Pressure Injury Prevention Practices?

First introduced by Florence Nightingale in 1850, physically repositioning people who can’t move themselves is one of the most prevalent measures currently used to prevent pressure injuries (bed sores). This practice takes significant time and is considered a leading cause of work-related injuries. Some health care facilities invest in expensive mattresses made of foam, air or gel that are designed to redistribute pressure in bony areas. However, they fail to bring blood, oxygen and nutrients to tissue. Prelivia is the first technology clinically proven to prevent pressure injuries (bed sores) from forming.
