Prevent Pressure Ulcers With Assistive Devices

Posted

It is bad enough to be bound to a wheelchair, but it can it make all the more uncomfortable when you get pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are incredible painful sores that are formed from rubbing or pressing an area of the skin for a long period of time. It is not uncommon to find pressure ulcers on someone who is wheelchair or bed bound. Severe pressure ulcers can take months of even years to heal, so your best bet is to take steps to prevent them from forming in the first place. Luckily Assistive Devices is here to help. 

Preventing a pressure ulcer is much easier when you have Assistive Devices on your side. Although we have many options available to you, if you are looking for pressure ulcer prevention in your wheelchair you need to look into the Pressure Protection Solution. This comes with an incredibly comfortable wheelchair cushion. This cushion is made of high resilient foam. It provides optimal stabilization and positioning, while helping to protect your skin from breaking down. The best part about this pressure prevention cushion is that it is so easy to clean. All you have to do is remove the polyester cover and throw it in the washer!
