Rober’s mission is to avoid pressure ulcers in people who are “at risk”, so we have been honoured to work collaboratively with other pressure ulcer mattress suppliers to help achieve this.
Over the last three years we have working alongside a UK pressure ulcer relief company designing and manufacturing a new pump for them. The technology was modified to the company’s own mattress criteria to meet their customer’s needs. Drawing on manufacturing support from our sister company, Speed Plastics, and our vast knowledge of pressure ulcer relief technology, Rober was delighted to design and manufacture a completely new mattress design for them. So far over 100 mattresses have been manufactured and issued to the customer, with a further 50 to be distributed very soon.
Pressure ulcers can cause immense pain and present a treatment problem for healthcare providers. They can result in prolonged hospital stays and even death. Treating pressure ulcers can be costly, using precious resources. Estimates suggest that 80-95% of pressure ulcers are avoidable, so it’s a case of prevention being better than cure.
Together we can help #stopthepressure.
