Pressure Injury Prevention

If you have a spinal cord injury or impairment it is difficult to get through life without having some experience with a pressure injury. These short videos highlight the causes and effects, sometimes devastating, of pressure injuries. We want to help you avoid getting one.

The content is based on international literature, recent ACC research and the lived experience of the participants in the videos. The development of this resource, released on World Spinal Cord Injury Day 5th September 2018, is a collaborative work of BAIL and the NZ Spinal Trust funded by ACC of New Zealand. We are grateful to everyone involved who have made this powerful resource possible.
