The mattresses are fully automatic, and as a result patients require less frequent manual repositioning
UK company Rober, which specialises in the development and manufacture of ‘zero pressure’ technology, will be at MEDICA 2016 in Duesseldorf from 14–17 November in hall 16, stand G20-02, to showcase its range of pioneering mattress solutions.
Rober 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 that promote the healing of established ulcers.
The mattresses are fully automatic, and as a result patients require less frequent manual repositioning, thus relieving the pressure on busy nursing staff. They can be used in everyday nursing environments, as well as acute care facilities.
'Rober’s mattresses, overlays and cushions have been developed to replicate the body’s natural movements by responding to a patient’s weight, spontaneous movement pattern and body position,' says Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober. 'They provide enhanced comfort and complete pressure elimination at regular intervals.'
