The Life/form® Elderly Pressure Injury Foot for instruction on the care and cleaning of pressure injuries in various stages. Pressure injuries appear over pressure points such as heels, tips of toes, between toes, or anywhere the bones may protrude and rub against socks, shoes, or bed sheets. This Elderly Pressure Injury Foot contains all four severity stages:

Elderly Pressure Ulcer Foot Stages

Stage 1

Located on the bottom of the toe. Surface of the skin is red. A patient may feel the area is painful, firm, soft, warmer, or cooler compared to other skin tissue.

Stage 2

Located on the bottom of the foot just under the toe. Surface of the skin is red. Wound extends deeper into the skin layers. Partial thickness loss of dermis presenting a shallow open ulcer with a red-pink wound bed.

Stage 3

Located on the side of the foot. Surface of the skin is red. Wound looks like a crater and reaches the bottom layer of the skin. Full thickness tissue loss. Subcutaneous fat may be visible but bone, tendon, and muscle are not exposed.

Stage 4

Located on the heel of the foot. Surface of the skin is red. Wound has destroyed a great amount of tissue and has damaged muscle, bone, joints, and tendons. Full thickness tissue loss with exposed bone, tendon, or muscle. Slough or eschar may be present on some parts. Often includes tunneling.
