Our new Pressure Mapping Report looks at the compatibility of Immedia's SatinSheet and 4WayGlide in bed systems with foam and pressure relieving mattresses
Furthermore, in-bed systems improve the working environment for the carer and minimise shear on the user. When combining an in-bed system with a pressure relieving mattress, a risk assessment must be carried out but the conclusion was clear:
Results show that there is an insignificant change of pressure recorded on the test patient when combining Immedia’s various “in-bed” systems with foam or air mattresses”
Remember: the best way to prevent pressure ulcers is pressure distribution and minimising shear and friction.
