Pressure sore development is preventable. Use of specialist pressure redistribution support surfaces help to display weight more evenly and protect the skin, and designed to give maximum comfort while you rest, it will also support a better night's sleep.
When choosing a pressure care mattress, it is important to consider the effects of that mattress on skin protection. Pressure management mattresses may be static or dynamic. In general, a static mattress refers to a mattress that doesn’t move when a person lies on it.
It is important to note that NICE guidelines state that:
“if you are at risk or have a grade 1 or 2 pressure ulcer, the minimum provision you should receive is a high specification foam mattress which moulds or contours to the body, helping to relieve pressure and stop ulcers from developing.”
