* Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This mattress will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as 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.
The Softform Premier Active 2 is appropriate for patients in Acute hospital environments, Nursing and Residential and Homecare settings.
The air insert contained within the Softform Premier mattress allows stepping up and down between static and dynamic alternating systems with minimum patient disruption.
Powered by an innovative digital pump, the air cells alternate on a ten minute cycle, delivering a very low impact at the point of change.
This significantly enhances patient comfort and makes a positive contribution to reducing the potential negative impact of vigorous reperfusion on blood capillary vessels.
