Air-Flo 8 Acute - Use of the Air-Flo 8 Acute could lead to considerable cost savings for the NHS. (BJN, Tissue Viability Supplement 2015)
Pressure ulcers can be unpleasant, upsetting and challenging to treat, so it's better to prevent them from developing in the first place by regularly changing a person's position and using equipment to protect vulnerable parts of the body such as specially designed mattresses.
We work with a number of suppliers to provide the best, most cost-effective foam and air mattresses on the market today. As a testament to the quality of our mattresses, we offer a seven year warranty.
Pressure ulcer prevention and considerable financial savings are primary requirements for the NHS and Department of Health. There is a firm clinical consensus throughout national and international bodies that patients at a high risk of developing pressure ulcers, or with existing tissue damage, should be cared for on an alternating (pressure-relieving) mattress system.
“Combined with a pressure ulcer management plan and turning schedule, the Air-Flo 8 Acute performed well, giving an option to continue to care for high-risk patients with an empirically proven effective therapy, while making considerable financial savings.”
