Products which aid in comfort and good posture are not only limited to providing support in a wheelchair, but they are also great for patients who need to lie on bed for longer. Good posture is essential to enhance comfort and convenience which is often lost when patients have to use bed or wheelchair for prolonged durations of time. However, Skil-Care products support these patients by providing them assistance to maintain the right posture which is also essential for the reduction and prevention of pressure sores. These products do the needful by distributing interface pressures evenly.
Beds for ulcer prevention
Several factors could lead to decubitus ulcers –excessive pressure, excessive moisture, shearing forces, and nutrition. To help residents at the risk of decubitus ulcers, SKil-Care has produced a line of bed positioning products which reduce or completely eliminate the factors causing the problem. Bed positioning products have been designed to maximize support areas, minimize shearing forces, and off-load areas of concern. It is very important to offload the affected areas where ulcers erupt.
If the ulcers have already erupted in a patient, it is crucial to reposition or off-load the area every now and then (in a gap of less than two hours). Discomfort in the lower back can be relieved by supporting the knees.
There are Abductor/Contracture cushion, bed rail wedges, anti-reflux wedges, foot and heel elevators, bed support systems, transfer belts and several other products which provide ultimate comfort and posture to patients at home or institutional settings.
Anyone looking for Skil-Care comfort products can find help at online stores. Authorized dealers also sell Skil-Care products online at wholesale prices. Buying online provides the same quality guarantee as an offline store. In fact, purchasing online reduces the hassles of making arrangements for transportation.
