Using pressure care products and accessories in care homes can help to minimize the prevalence of pressure sores. By alleviating pressure on key areas of the body while patients spend lengthy periods in bed, the risk of pressure sores developing or worsening can be minimised. This includes the elbows, pelvic area, and even the feet, which can be cared for with specialist heel protectors.

One of the most innovative pressure care accessories available is the Polysoft Elbow Protector. This elbow protector is available in a standard and extra-soft format. By protecting the elbow using soft material, it prevents patients who lie laterally from experiencing sores in that area. Polysoft also offer ring cushions, which alleviate external pressure from the area surrounding the tailbone - the most common area for pressure sores to develop.

Our range of pressure care accessories includes items to encourage residents to engage in prevention. The Bradshaw Side Rail, for example, allows residents to use their upper body strength to move their weight from areas where pressure sores are most likely to appear. For the benefit of staff members, Bradshaw also offer a lifting pole. Both staff and residents can use this pole together to encourage movement.

Pressure care products and accessories can help to improve quality of life and quality of service, providing benefits for staff members and residents alike. For more guidance, take a look at our blog post on pressure sores, which explains more about what causes pressure sores and how to treat them.
