Medline unveils advanced range of therapeutic pressure redistribution mattresses

Medline Industries : 01 July, 2008  (New Product)
Medline Industries has introduced an advanced range of therapeutic pressure redistribution mattresses, operating room table pads and stretcher pads aimed at helping hospitals and long-term care providers prevent avoidable, painful pressure ulcers in their facilities.
Designed with state-of-the-art materials, the products provide pressure redistribution, reduced shearing effects and a cool, comfortable therapeutic surface for patients. The products are also part of the product bundle included in Medline's comprehensive Pressure Ulcer Prevention Programme to assist in reducing and preventing pressure ulcers, incontinence-associated dermatitis and skin tears.

'It is critical that healthcare providers have a comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention programme - and prevention starts with the surface,' said Alecia Cooper, RN, CNOR, vice president of clinical services marketing for Medline. 'Patients are often placed on stretchers upon admission and for transport. They can also be on operating room tables for lengthy surgical procedures and for extended recovery periods. Since pressure-related forces can damage tissue in as little as 20 minutes, a key prevention component is a support surface that is effective in redistributing pressure away from areas of peak pressure on the body.'
