Electrical Stimulation

Q10. What is the evidence associated with electrical stimulation to treat pressure ulcers?
1. There is level I evidence from 2 RCTs to support the use of electrical stimulation (Figure 6) to accelerate the healing rate of stage III and IV pressure ulcers when combined with standard wound management.
