In-depth reviews of the Pressure Ulcer Prevention (PUP) app.

Clinical review

: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: January 2020 
Comments: This app, developed in association with the Christopher and Dana Reeves Foundation, is designed to allow patients to track pressure ulcers of high-risk areas and show tips for improvement. The user can only track ulcers on the ischiums, sacrum and heels, but not other areas such as elbows. It also has 'pressure relief' reminders with custom intervals. It has a photo tracking feature, but this was unfortunately bugged on my device at the time of review, with the data not saving after exiting the app. It is also missing data exportation. It also doesn’t seem like the app is being actively maintained, so I don’t have high expectations for this to be fixed or for more modern features to be added. 
Safety concerns: None.
New Zealand relevance: Relevant; no issues of concern.
