Clinical evidence

The proven leader in turn protocol improvement + HAPI reduction

The LEAF System is backed by a wealth of evidence – including more than a hundred clinical studies – demonstrating:

  • Improvement in turn quality or protocol adherence
  • Reduced risk of developing HAPIs compared with standard care
  • Reduced costs related to HAPIs compared with standard care
  • Help in mitigating disparity in care around:
    • Nursing shifts
    • Patient characteristics such as BMI and ventilator status
  • Help improving teamwork, workflow prioritization and communication, which is evident in nurse surveys
