What are pressure ulcers?

Pressure ulcers are localised injuries to the skin and underlying tissue. They are commonly referred to as pressure sores or bed sores.

Pressure relieving mattresses are time saving devices that provide extra support to good nursing care levels.  They help nursing staff deliver uninterrupted pressure care to vulnerable patients with the aim of lowering the risk of pressure ulcer development. Following individual assessment, these cost-effective systems free up nursing time and minimise risk to personal injury, by reducing the number of times a patient requires repositioning throughout any 24 hour period.

Select Medical manufacture, supply, clean & repair a wide range of pressure relieving mattresses and cushions.

Our specialist pressure prevention support surfaces are often referred to as either pressure relieving, alternating or dynamic mattresses.  In some nursing care homes, they are better known as airflow mattresses/cushions.
