The Domus Auto – auto-adjusting pressure redistribution mattress system — implementing early pressure injury prevention for long-term care patients
60% of aging, long-term care residents develop pressure injuries. The aging epidemic, longer life expectancy and extensive need for assistive care raise pressure injury risk and burden for individuals and institutions.
Many residents experience pressure-related discomfort, but undertrained and overworked staff tend to overlook their concerns, increasing complications, mortality risks, and nursing time and labour costs.
Domus Auto’s automatic firmness calibration and manual refinement optimize early pressure injury prevention. Sacrum pressure relief allows individuals with different postures to sit longer and more comfortably.
Auto-adjust firmness, alternating surface
- Suitable for improving pressure injuries in long-term care and homecare residents.
- Automatic firmness adjustment based on residents’ weight distribution for quick setup and pressure relief delivery.
- Firmer air cells at the sacrum prevent patients from bottoming out when sitting.
- Visual and audible alarm enhances patient safety and security.

Preventing pressure injuries
It can be challenging to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk. These include:
- Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you.
- Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home.
- Having a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian.
- Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation.
If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
