There are compelling economic arguments for healthcare providers to invest in pressure ulcer prevention. Pressure ulcers dramatically increase the cost of each patient’s care bill, studies showing that each ulcer adds an additional £4,000 onto the overall care costs of a patient. Consequences for the patient include prolonged hospitalisation, pain, social isolation and in worst cases, death.
With the right technology, training and support, 95% of pressure injuries can be prevented.UK pressure ulcer prevention specialist, Rober prides itself on manufacturing and assembling mattresses to the highest quality standards.
Being a global supplier of the highest quality dynamic air mattresses, at Rober we understand customer needs. We know that in the real world, the needs and budgets of healthcare providers vary. Rober has therefore developed two solutions to cater for all situations. These include our premium NoDec® and our standard Airflex® offerings.
NoDec is a fully featured ‘zero pressure’ range of mattress solutions for patients who are at risk of developing a pressure injury. NoDec also offers the perfect treatment solution for patients who already have an established ulcer. The range includes a variety of options, including bariatric and intensive care patients, and mattresses that have an independent heel zone to prevent ulcers in the heel and lower limbs.
Rober’s Airflex mattress range is part of our new innovative ‘cost effective’ range of mattresses designed to fulfil the requirements of ‘affordable healthcare.’ Included in this range are mattress replacement and overlay options.
