Sidhil Permaflex Plus Pressure Relief Mattress
Patients at a high risk of pressure sore development are often at even higher risk in certain areas – usually the scapula, sacrum and heel areas. The Sidhil Permaflex Plus Pressure Relief Mattress is designed to provide excellent pressure distribution for the entire area, and includes special castellated zones at high risk areas to provide even further relief, helping to prevent skin breakdown in high risk patients.
Who Should Use the Sidhil Permaflex Plus Mattress?
This pressure care mattress is an ideal option for bed-bound patients in care homes, hospitals and residential care settings who are at a high risk of pressure ulcer development. Since it includes specially castellated zones at the sacrum, scapula and heel areas, it is particularly suited to lower mobility patients who may be at especially high risk of skin breakdown in these vulnerable areas.
How Does Castellation Improve Pressure Relief?
Castellated foam (foam with small separations in a certain area to create a number of small, independently moving sections) is particularly useful for protection of skin, as it will move with the patient rather than pulling against the skin. This will help to greatly reduce shear forces, which is one of the key causes of pressure sore development.
Is This Mattress Suitable for Patient Transfers?
Standard foam mattresses can often be too flimsy for use during patient transfers, posing a risk to the patient if a care team were to attempt to move them while still lying down. The Permaflex Plus Pressure Care Mattress provides a solution to this problem with inclusion of high density foam formers at the sides, providing a more sturdy surface to mitigate the risk of the patient rolling off the side while a transfer is taking place.
Is a Cover Included?
Yes, a waterproof and vapour-permeable cover is included as standard with any purchase of the Sidhil Permaflex Plus Mattress. The cover includes welded seams and an enclosed zip to ensure durability and reduce the risk of fluid ingress. To further protect the skin of the patient, the cover is made with multi-stretch material that will help to reduce shear and friction forces.
