About this work


A medical film which explains how pressure sores can form via restricted blood flow. There is a sequence of a ballet dancer dancing at the beginning; a motif to which the film returns. Photographs, infographics and intertitles are used. Immobile patients are described - they are unable to move naturally for a range of reasons and are particularly at risk. Pressure sores have four stages which are illustrated graphically. (The film was made to promote Granuflex dressings).


England, [1980?]
