Pressure injuries are prevalent at all levels of healthcare settings, can affect all age groups and can cause catastrophic injury and in many cases, are preventable!
Did you know in the UK the estimated total cost of treating pressure ulcers in between £2bn and £3bn each year. (Drew et al, 2007). Having developed specialised pressure care products, we wanted to prove the positive impact they could have in reducing the cases of pressure sores in healthcare environments. A randomised controlled trial is complex to undertake and therefore are rare in the field of wound care. Case study evidence is considered to give a great deal of information that would be lost in a more controlled type of study. To date Invacare has produced comprehensive reports and on our support surfaces. Here you can download a selection of them to discover how we can help you reduce costs while improving patient wellbeing.
