Pressure & Posture Care
Optimising pressure care and comfort for patients
One major concern among patients with limited mobility are injuries to the skin and underlying tissues. These injuries include pressure ulcers, which result from sitting or lying in a single position for a prolonged period, as well as abrasions, which are caused by friction. Invacare has placed priority on these issues when developing its products, and the results are several different lines of pressure care, such as pressure mattresses, wheelchair cushions, back support cushions and accessories designed to ease pressure points by redistributing the body weight over rest surfaces.
