    Did they tie off the cells underneath the problem area on your Roho. Not sure if they are still doing that. Did they do an eval using the Ride cushion? Been a game chabger for me as it unloads all the pressure on the trocantors and part between cheeks.

      Pressure mapping of the cushion is very important. CWO

              My injury resulted from falling from a cliff on the rocky coast above the beach. On the way down this exact area was scraped open by rocks jutting out from the side of the bluff. For 32 years it would heal, then sometimes I'd bust it open again; this happened once every couple years or so. This last time I went to the wound care people, and they did the keep it covered and moist routine. It healed once again. Been 4 years now and it hasn't busted open again, so I reckon they know what they're doing. Good luck to everybody reg. pressure sores, they're the bane no doubt of all sci'd.
