A world without pressure

The pioneering mattress

To coincide with Pressure Injury Prevention Day on 16 November, United Kingdom manufacturer Rober LTD is again at Medica highlighting how advanced technology can help ‘stop the pressure’.

The company’s intensive care pressure ulcer mattress is designed to offer pressure ulcer relief to immobile and critically ill patients. ‘The Wizard combines Rober’s signature alternating pressure cell design with an impressive tilt facility,’ the maker explains. ‘This action gently turns the patient onto their side, comfortably and correctly.

‘The mattress replicates the body’s natural movements by responding to a patient’s weight, spontaneous movement pattern and body position. It also provides enhanced comfort and complete pressure elimination at regular intervals. 

‘The technology prevents pressure injuries from developing and also includes therapeutic properties that promote the healing of established ulcers.’ 

‘As a UK designer and manufacturer of pressure ulcer prevention technology, exhibitions like MEDICA are vital for us to showcase technology such as the Wizard on a global scale,’ said Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober. ‘The exhibition once again ties in with World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day so it supports our ultimate aim to help stop the pressure globally.’
