Bariatric pressure injury prevention

Enhance the care and protection of fragile skin with specialised support surfaces for plus size patients with compromised skin integrity.

Due to fluid retention and poor circulation, plus size patients commonly have increased skin fragility, making them vulnerable to infection, pressure injury and skin tears.1 To mitigate this risk, the use of appropriate therapeutic support surfaces are recommended by expert body guidelines such as the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP).1

We offer a range of support surfaces that equip facilities with appropriate solutions to deliver optimised care for plus size patients with compromised skin integrity. Our bariatric surfaces align with international guidelines2 for the prevention and treatment of pressure injuries.
