High level of individual confort for those considered at ‘High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers

The Propad Premier Overlay is light weight andsuitable for those consideredat ‘High Risk’* of developingpressure ulcers, making it idealfor the homecare environment.

The design of the overlayalong with the retaining strapsenables it to fold to a quarterof its size, ensuring ease ofhandling and transportation.

Features

  • Folds down to a quarter of its length. Facilitates easy storage and delivery. Carrying and retaining strap ensures ease of handling and transportation.
  • Cover is multi stretch, water-resistant and vapour-permeable and helps to prevent a build up of shear and friction forces. It also features an anti-slip base.
  • The Invacare Propad Premier Overlay has a foam core that has independent, geometrically-cut surface cells. This significantly reduces shear and friction whilst increasing the support surface area, thereby reducing peak pressure.
  • The foam core has larger, more supportive cells at the centre and smaller cells at each end. This enables the mattress overlay to achieve even weight distribution by conforming to the shape and form of the body and cradles bony prominences.

Manufactured to European Standards: BS EN 597-1 Cig, BS EN 597-2 Match and BS 7175 (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.
