Propad Premier Mattress Overlay

Propad - the original and still the best mattress overlay you can provide for your patient. Clinically effective, easy to carry overlay for high risk or elevated risk patients

Propad Overlays are designed for use in conjunction with standard domestic/conventional mattresses. Propad Overlays have an established reputation amongst health care professionals, and are particularly recommended for use in the community sector as a central element within a pressure ulcer prevention programme.

Created specifically for community application, the Invacare Propad Premier Mattress Overlay has been designed for use in conjunction with conventional mattresses to deliver exceptional comfort and pressure reduction.

This overlay provides an excellent pressure reducing surface, which can significantly contribute to the prevention of pressure ulcers.

*Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This overlay will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. The Waterlow score is a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of greater importance and clinical value.
