Enhanced care for compromised skin
Enhance the care and protection of fragile skin with specialized support surfaces for plus-size patients with compromised skin integrity.
Due to fluid retention and poor circulation, plus-size patients commonly suffer increased skin fragility, making them more vulnerable to pressure injury and skin tears. To help mitigate this risk, the use of appropriate 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 and microclimate management solutions to help in the care of plus-size patients with compromised skin integrity.
