New dementia-friendly and comfortable pressure cushions give dementia patients peace of mind
Pressure care specialist Airospring has announced a new range of dementia-friendly pressure cushions, which boast a non-clinical look that could otherwise be daunting for dementia patients.
During the creation of the new pressure cushions, Airospring worked alongside many different organisations including Alzheimer’s Society and The Care Workers Charity. The team of Airospring professionals have lots of experience in the care industry and wanted to create a cushion to help those with dementia.
The cushions are designed to look like a standard household cushion and are made out of a comfortable and breathable material – 3D spacer fabric. Airospring says that this fabric is a more effective method of providing pressure relief.
To provide peace of mind for individuals, the range’s non-clinical look means that they are not daunting for people with dementia.
The cushions are available in a range of contrasting colours to stand out amongst an individual’s home furniture as dementia patients can find it difficult to spot a chair or know where to sit down. This high-contrast feature can also aid those with vision impairments.
Additionally, the range comes in a low, medium and high risk. They also distribute weight and allow maximum airflow, which provide benefits to the skin through creating a microclimate.
According to Airospring, the dementia cushions have been trialled in a variety of care settings and have received “brilliant” feedback.
For clients who are not fully satisfied with the pressure cushions, Airospring offers a 14-day refund guarantee.
