For the prevention and relief of pressure sores (decubitus) seat cushions or special mattresses can help.
These assistive products:
- prevent a pressure sore developing in the first place
- Support the treatment of the bedridden
For people who are constantly sitting due to severe impairment of movement or who are bedridden, a high pressure load on different parts of the body occurs, mainly in the buttocks and coccyx region.
The blood circulation of the skin in these areas is poor and is not supplied with enough nutrients and oxygen – this results in pressure sores.
