Pressure mattresses to avoid ulceration

A UK company that specialises in the development and manufacture of ‘zero pressure’ technology is showing its full range of mattress solutions at Medica this year.

Over the last few years, Rober Ltd of Chesterfield, has invested heavily in R&D to develop a complete range of pressure ulcer mattresses that cater for a variety of needs, including patients who are immobile, bariatric or have existing pressure injuries.

Developed in conjunction with clinicians, the mattresses feature clinically proven technology that prevents pressure injuries from developing. They also have therapeutic properties to promote the healing of established ulcers.

The mattresses are fully automatic, and patients nursed on them require less frequent manual repositioning, thus relieving the pressure on busy nurses. The mattresses can be used in everyday nursing environments, as well as acute care facilities.

‘Designed and manufactured in the UK, Rober’s mattresses and overlays have been developed to replicate the body’s natural movements by responding to a patient’s weight, spontaneous movement pattern and body position,’ Rober explained. ‘They provide enhanced comfort and complete pressure elimination at regular intervals.’
