It’s important not to undermine the important of pressure ulcers, commonly referred to as bedsores, because the word sore might lead one to consider the condition as a slight uneasiness when in actual fact bedsores are second only to drug reactions as the most significant iatrogenic cause of death. Iatrogenic death refers to an unanticipated death caused from the very medical care trying to save a person. Bedsores are skin lesions caused by a multitude of factors including, but not limited to; temperature, medication, age, pressure (specifically unrelieved pressure) and friction. The most commonly affected areas are the major joints; knees, ankles, neck, wrists and elbows however anywhere can be affected. A British nurse in the 1950’s named Doreen Norton discovered the best prevention for bedsores to be physically moving a patient every couple of hours to relieve pressure and keep the body in a state of regular internal motion. This theory is still practised today as a fundamental of nursing. Our mattresses implement these theories, along with innovative technology, to produce high functioning, capable products which ensure the highest level of comfort whilst thwarting bedsores.
