Effective pressure ulcer prevention
The foam core has independent, geometrically-cut surface cells that help to reduce shear and friction, whilst increasing the overall support surface area, thereby reducing peak pressure.
Even weight distribution
The Propad Overlay has larger, more supportive cells at the centre and smaller cells at each end, enabling the mattress overlay to achieve even weight distribution by conforming to the shape and form of the body and to cradle bony prominences.
Manufactured to European Standards: BS 7177 Crib 5 * Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This product will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of greater importance and clinical value. The risk category in this instance is based on the Waterlow Scale.
