Material and methods: Participants receive interventions as part of routine medical care, and a researcher studies the effect of the intervention. The study was conducted in people over 65 years old, with bedsores grade III and IV in Torrance scale. The therapy included radiation of bedsores with VIP light. Effectiveness of the method of treatment was examined using photographic images and to measure the extent of the wound.

Full description

18 people were examined. In all subjects, were assessed the risk of developing bedsores according to the scale Dutch Consensus Prevention of Bedsores CBO. All bedsores were irradiated with a Bioptron lamp (20 sessions, twice a day). Photo and measurement of bedsores size and Torrance score, were made:on the first, 9, 18 and 36 day of therapy.
