BBI – Bruin Biometrics
The SEM Scanner is the world’s first FDA-authorized device to objectively alert clinicians to specific anatomical areas of a patient’s body at increased risk for developing pressure damage. Bruin Biometrics- BBI, are the manufacturers of the world's first wireless hand-held device supporting health care practitioners, as an adjunct to clinical judgement, to alert healthcare practitioners to increased risk of pressure ulcers 5 days (median) earlier than visual skin inspection1. Leading to lower pressure ulcer incidence, improved patient outcomes and reduced facility cost2
