Recommendation ID
MTG20/1
Question
Research is recommended to address uncertainties about the claimed patient and system benefits of using Parafricta Bootees and Undergarments. This should take the form of comparative research against standard care, preferably carried out in a hospital.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
The research should include development of criteria to recognise people who would most benefit from the technology in both hospitals and community care. NICE will explore the development of appropriate further evidence, in collaboration with the technology sponsor and with clinical and academic partners, and will update this guidance if and when substantive new evidence becomes available.
