UK “zero pressure” mattress maker, Rober offers the latest in pressure relief care. The company has 4 key design areas. One of these is patient safety and comfort.
The patient is always at the heart of Rober’s thinking. As well as enjoying protection against pressure ulcers, anyone using a Rober mattress needs to be comfortable. This is especially true if they are immobile or bedridden for long periods of time.
Rober’s dynamic mattresses mimic the body’s natural movement to prevent pressure ulcers from forming. Moving up and down in a wave-like motion, it provides regular and complete pressure relief to all potential contact points.
Features include dual pressure settings that improve comfort levels for frail patients, without nursing staff having to compromise on pressure relief.
An adjustable comfort control means settings can be changed to suit the patient’s needs and clinical demands. The supportive, yet dynamic overlay also enhances quality of sleep.
Side formers remain inflated to increase patient safety during transfer from bed to a chair or trolley. A ‘knee-break’ facility allows patients to comfortably recline or sit up without risking pressure ulcers.
Rober’s CEO, Mike Hutson said; “Patients who are most at risk of ulcers are often those bedridden for long periods of time. That’s why comfort is so important. We designed our new generation mattresses to offer flexibility for carers and comfort for patients. They really do work to ensure protection against the risk of pressure ulcers while being patient friendly too.”
