New paediatric pressure ulcer mattress which helps relieve pressure on busy nursing staff to be showcased at MEDICA
Rober, which specialises in the development and manufacture of ‘zero pressure’ technology, will be launching a new innovative paediatric pressure mattress at MEDICA 2019, aiming to grab the attention of attending healthcare professionals.
Designed to support children aged between 0-13 years old, Rober launched the three cell-cycle alternating pressure mattress replacement system following feedback from its global partners.
Catering for a weight range between 0-60 kilograms, the AirFlex TRIO Junior mattress has been designed to be used as a pressure relieving support mattress in children’s hospitals and paediatric units worldwide.
Rober has also updated two of its key mattresses – NoDec AIRSTREAM3 and NoDec WIZARD – creating reduced height versions of the mattresses. The enhanced versions offer the same zero pressure as the originals but with a reduced height of 20cm to meet the BS EN 60601-2-52:2010 bed frame requirements of global hospitals.
All Rober mattresses feature clinically proven technology that prevents pressure injuries from developing, says the company. They also have therapeutic properties that promote the healing of established ulcers.
Offering ‘zero pressure’ protection, the mattresses 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.
Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober, said: “MEDICA is one of our key export events of the year so we are delighted to be launching our new mattresses at the exhibition.
“Like all our mattresses, the new AirFlex TRIO Junior is fully automatic, and anyone nursed upon it requires less frequent manual repositioning, thus relieving the pressure on busy nursing staff. It’s the first time we have used our technology to create a paediatric mattress so it’s an exciting time for us.”
Rober will be exhibiting on Stand KI7-6 in Hall 16 at MEDICA 2019, which takes place from the 18th-21st of November 2019 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
