Therapeutic surfaces assist in the prevention and healing of skin breakdown, more commonly known as pressure ulcers, pressure sores, bedsores and decubitus ulcers, are localized injuries to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur over a bony prominence as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction.
Pressure-ulcer prevention and management guidelines recommend support-surface therapy to help prevent and treat pressure ulcers. We offer a range of support surfaces including pads, mattresses, and cushions that redistribute pressure. There are entry level products to assist with the prevention of pressure ulcers to high-end products to promote healing and ongoing prevention.
In some cases, purchasing of a high-end product is not necessary as use may only be required for a short time to assist in healing the affected area. We offer a number of therapeutic surfaces for rental to address these often short term requirements. Stop by our store at 390 Springbank Drive to view a selection of these products, or give us a call and we would be happy to provide some options for you.
