A pressure ulcer can occur when constant pressure is applied to a particular area of the skin for prolonged periods. Our alternating paediatric pressure mattress systems are designed to reduce the risk of a pressure injury in children and the smaller adult. Additional risk factors to pressure damage occuring in children include poor blood flow, friction and shear forces that all add to how quickly tissue damage can develop. In children and even young babies the risk of pressure ulcer development can be higher amongst those with spina bifida, a spinal injury, neurological damage or any other condition which restricts their ability to move.
If you are a carer looking to reduce these risks and are searching for an appropriate alternating pressure paediatric mattress, Pure Air 6 Paediatric and LiteAir can prove to provide a perfect solution.
