At Select Medical we believe a pressure care company should be about more than just providing support surfaces – there’s a much bigger role for us to play. That’s why you’ll hear a lot about our unique C3 approach, an ambition to benefit everyone.

When we talk about everyone, we think of the care provider, the carer, and the cared for.

So how can we make everyone better off and keep our C3 philosophy firmly in our sights?

It’s something we aspire to achieve each and every day in the work we do and how we do it. We all share the responsibility to have a positive impact on people, both inside and outside of our organisation. You’ll still see us doing the important things you would expect of a pressure care company, but you’ll also see the unexpected too. You’ll see us doing things other companies in this field don’t, and looking at things in ways others won’t.

Why? It’s simple. We have a different objective – a bigger idea behind our business. Something we practice everyday throughout the entire organisation and in everything we do.

C3 is the value of helping to create a positive outcome for everyone and we put this into practice in a number of ways.

C3 Guarantee

We continually listen and interact with Care Providers, Carers and the Cared For, interpreting the collected insights and integrating them into our product development.

Our aim is to help you maximise the care you give by going that extra mile to make your life easier, which in turn will benefit all involved.

So, how do we do this?

Every Patient Matters

Select Medical surfaces are manufactured with efficacy, reliability & comfort firmly in mind to help improve patient outcomes.

We manufacture a comprehensive range of support surfaces as we know one system does not suit all. Whether you’re looking for a dynamicbariatric, paediatriccrossover or low air loss system, we can help.

We also offer a bespoke service on many of our support surfaces if required.


All surfaces are independently tested to IEC 60601, ensuring their complete safety & helping you meet vital compliance & reporting requirements.

Aiding Good Nursing Care

Our surfaces are a tool to aid good nursing care; they are clinically effective, reliable and safe for the patient backed with service support.

This helps to give back to nursing time allowing Carers the time to get on with the job they do best.

Training & Support

At Select Medical we don’t just sell you a mattress and leave you to get on with it!

Our dedicated Account Management Team can deliver FREE education and training. This ensures Carers are fully equipped to install and operate the support surface, keeping everyone safe.

Life-cycle Costs

Our support surfaces are not only affordable to purchase, but also over their lifetime.

By purchasing direct from the manufacturer ongoing maintenance costs are minimised. Interchangeable component parts are easily ordered and fitted with just one call to our dedicated service team.

Free Resources

At Select Medical we take pride in our C3 ethos where we are constantly thinking of new ways to help the care provider, carer and cared for. To that end, we have created a number of free educational posters and some pocket sized cards on the vulnerable areas for pressure ulcers. You can order these resources for free online.
