Propad Mattress Overlay

£139.00 + VAT

This Propad Mattress Overlay is designed to sit on top of a conventional mattress providing comfort and pressure area care for those users who are considered to be at High Risk of developing pressure ulcers. The Propad brand is recognised throughout the healthcare sector for delivering high quality and very effective pressure care products that provide users with relief and comfort. The mattress overlay has been specially designed to reduce friction, whilst increasing the overall support surface area therefore minimising the peak pressure. This also enables the mattress overlay to achieve even weight distribution which makes the mattress even more comfortable for the user. Furthermore the cover is multi-stretch, water-resistant and breathable and it also has an anti-slip base, preventing the mattress overlay from slipping or moving around whilst on the bed and improving user safety.

Preventing Pressure Ulcers
It can be difficult to completely prevent pressure ulcers, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.
These include:
regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home

Effective Pressure Ulcer Prevention
The European Pressure Ulcer Advisor Panel 3 suggests the avoidance of subjecting the skin to both pressure and shear forces, both major contributory factors in the development of pressure ulcers. The Softform Premier Original has been designed to actively address these factors. A unique contoured insert pad, constructed from castellated foam cells, which conform independently to movement and body position to effectively reduce shear and friction forces. In addition the high specification foam support surface provides excellent comfort and pressure redistribution. The mattress has a non-glued construction, which allows for good conformity when profiled on electric bed frames and enables air to flow freely between castellations, attributing to a healthy micro-climate. The high specification foam interface offers a comfortable, effective pressure redistributing surface for patients at ‘Very High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers. The high specification foam2 is specifically cut for effective contouring, microclimate and pressure redistribution.
