Effective pressure ulcer prevention

The core of the Invacare Softform Excel is constructed from a series of 'keyhole cut' cells that move independently to evenly distribute weight, promoting greater comfort and facilitating pressure redistribution. The robust base features a firm layer of high density foam to provide substantial support.

Multi-stretch PU waterproof cover

The cover fabric provides excellent recovery and durability, and helps to reduce shear and friction forces. The base of the mattress is a tough coated polyurethane (PU) which protects the mattress when used with electric profiling bed frames.

Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This mattress will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of greater importance and clinical value.
