Innovative pressure mattress to showcase at MEDICA 2016
A UK company specialising in the development and manufacture of ‘zero pressure’ technology will be at MEDICA 2016, showcasing a full range of pioneering mattress solutions.
Over the last few years, Rober has invested heavily in R&D to develop a complete range of pressure ulcer mattresses that cater for a variety of needs including patients that are immobile, bariatric or have existing pressure injuries.
Developed in conjunction with clinicians, the mattresses feature clinically proven technology that prevents pressure injuries from developing. They also have therapeutic properties that promote the healing of established ulcers.
The mattresses are fully automatic, and patients nursed upon them require less frequent manual repositioning, thus relieving the pressure on busy nursing staff. They can be used in everyday nursing environments, as well as acute care facilities.
Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober, said: “Designed and manufactured in the UK, Rober’s mattresses, overlays and cushions have been developed to replicate the body’s natural movements by responding to a patient’s weight, spontaneous movement pattern and body position. They provide enhanced comfort and complete pressure elimination at regular intervals.”
Pressure ulcers are a rising problem around the world and affect over 700,000 people a year in the UK alone, as well as an additional £4,000 per ulcer onto each person’s care bill. They are also linked to prolonged hospitalisation, pain, social isolation and in worst cases, death.
MEDICA 2016 is taking place from 14 – 17 November 2016 and throughout the show, Rober will be located in in hall 16, stand G20-02.
