Intelligent Pressure

As a healthcare or and wellness provider, you know that therapeutic interventions include the use of human touch. Therapeutic healthcare interventions include bandaging and wound care, CPR, bathing the patient, and palpating. For wellness practitioners, pressure is applied when giving massages- relaxation, sports, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue, reflexology, and other services. But how do you know when you’re applying too much pressure unless the patient complains? How do you know when you’re applying too little pressure to be effective?

Now through newly developed cutting edge technology and research, health and wellness providers can assess their own applied pressure in measurable units. After self-assessment, providers will practice and develop muscle memory to apply light, gentle, medium, heavy and intense pressure, and a new way to document the care in health records. The new skill will lead to uniformity in your applied force and standardization across healthcare and wellness providers, leading to higher patient/client satisfaction.
