Regular repositioning can minimize the risk of pressure injury

Manual repositioning may contribute to pressure injury development due to the increased shear and friction exerted on the skin².

At Arjo we believe frequent repositioning can be made easier and safer with the appropriate low-friction reusable or disposable patient handling equipment to help facilitate both patient repositioning in bed and transfers out of bed.
