The challenges of obese individuals
Obese individual (a BMI >40, WHO 2000) have an increased risk of pressure ulcer development. Due to reduced vascularity and profusion of adipose tissue, wound healing is prolonged so preventative measures for Bariatric individuals are essential.
This mattress has been specifically designed to meet the needs of heavier individuals and the challenges faced by care givers and clinicians in managing their care.
Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This mattress 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. Manufactured to European Standards: BS EN 597-1 Cig, BS EN 597-2 Match.
