Pressure Sore Prevention Products
Wheelchair Cushions, Body Positioners, Alternating Pressure Mattresses & More
A common issue for seniors, the elderly and disabled adults with limited mobility is the development of pressure sores or ulcers. There are many different types of pressure prevention products that can help alleviate pressure by redistributing weight. Common areas of pressure sore development are typically on the buttocks from sitting for extended periods, on the heels of the feet and various other places when laying in one position while in bed. The best way to prevent pressure sores is move the individual in different positions frequently so weight will be alternated to other areas of the body.
For help with relieving pressure from buttocks while seated, we carry various types of wheelchair cushions. There are also wheelchair body positioners that can help with posture and proper support. For those confined primarily to a bed, we carry very helpful pressure relief products, such as blanket lifters and heel pillows to alleviate pressure from sensitive feet. There is a selection of bed positioners that will help with alternating positions for patients laying down. And for those that are at a higher risk of developing bed sores, we carry various types of power operated alternating pressure mattresses and overlays.
