What does the app do?

The Pressure Ulcer Guide app provides information about pressure ulcers and has tips on how to prevent them. The app has an inbuilt calculator to determine pressure ulcer risk based on the Braden score. The app has a free version and a paid upgrade. Overall the app has some useful information but is poorly designed and gives a substandard user experience, eg, there is little guidance on how to use the inbuilt calculator. For the complete app description, go to Google Play or, for a more detailed review, see Reviews

PROS CONS 

✔ Generally accurate information about pressure ulcers and their prevention.

✔ Inbuilt pressure ulcer risk calculator (Braden Score) but no information about how to use it appropriately.

✔ The paid version has links to YouTube videos on the topic of pressure ulcers, eg, a series by Dr John Campbell.

✘ The information provided is not comprehensive.

✘ Last updated 5 years ago.

✘ Frequent grammatical errors.

 Some of the links to YouTube videos in the paid version no longer work.

✘ The information is generally geared towards prevention rather than treatment of pressure ulcers.
