Ultrasound/Ultraviolet Light Treatment

Q24. What is the evidence associated with ultrasound/ultraviolet light for treatment of pressure sores post SCI
1. There is level 1 evidence, from 1 small RCT, to suggest that combining US/UVC with standard wound care decreases wound healing time of pressure ulcers post SCI but no evidence to clarify whether UVC or US, used alone, have a beneficial effect.
