Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling of Pressure Driven Ischemia and Ulcer Formation in the Skin

Pressure ulcers (PU) are localized damage to skin and underlying tissue that forms in response to ischemia and subsequent hypoxia from external applied mechanical loads such as pressure. We demonstrate how a multiscale and multiphysics finite element model can capture the process of pressure ulcer formation.
