Helping you achieve Pressure Ulcer incidence reduction
We have collaborated with BBI (Europe) Ltd, the manufacturers of the world’s first wireless hand-held device supporting healthcare practitioners, as an adjunct to clinical judgment, to alert healthcare practitioners to increased risk of pressure ulcers 5 days (median) earlier than visual skin inspection[Okonkow]. Leading to lower pressure ulcer incidence, improved patient outcomes and reduced facility costs [Hancock; Burns].
Identifying the right support surface for each individual
The clinical needs of patients and residents can vary considerably. It is important to match the right surface to the right patient at the right time, according to their clinical needs.* For example, some patients may require a specialist therapy support surface to redistribute the pressure away from vulnerable areas of the skin, thus preventing prolonged periods of pressure, whilst other’s may need targeted interventions to address issues with temperature and micro-climate. We offer a range of support systems across a wide spectrum of clinical environments and clinical needs.
