Skin Tissue INTegrity under Shear

Project description

Research training network on mechanisms of skin damage under shear forces

The mechanical and biological properties of human skin may be affected in persons immobilised on a bed or in a wheelchair, in amputees wearing a prosthesis, or in cases where medical devices are attached to the skin. These situations can result in pressure ulcers, particularly in the elderly and in diabetics. Moreover, the skin is sensitive to the various personal care products used in daily life, resulting in various forms of irritation. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the STINTS project will create a network of highly specialised researchers who will investigate the biomechanical and biochemical events leading to loss of skin integrity during skin exposure to prolonged pressure and shear forces. The aim is to minimise the significant impacts of debilitating skin conditions such as pressure ulcers on healthcare systems and patients’ quality of life.
