Comfort and conformity

The interior of the overlay has a top layer of high density visco elastic foam that is temperature-sensitive. The foam warms and conforms to the users body shape, maximising the body contact area. This provides exceptional comfort and facilitates pressure reduction by minimising peak pressures.

High density supportive foam base

The dual layer construction, combines a high level of comfort with improved longevity, due to the supportive, robust foam base.

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.
