Products for improved comfort

​A person who must always use a wheelchair is at risk for developing pressure sores or decubitus ulcers. Unless the person repositions themselves frequently, decubitus ulcers can develop within a few hours.

Elderly patients are most likely to suffer from pressure sores. Bedridden patients whose skin may be sensitive because of nervous or circulatory conditions and those for whom paralysis makes change of position impossible are also susceptible. Included in this group are patients with stroke, cancer, AIDS, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease or quadriplegia.

Among the products that may be ordered for the patient are:

  • An alternating pressure pad with pump
  • Dry pressure mattress
  • Air pressure mattress
  • Gel pressure mattress
