UK pressure ulcer specialist Rober, will be showcasing their full range of alternating mattress solutions which cater for a variety of patients’ needs from everyday nursing environments to acute care facilities, at Arab Health 2016.
The pioneering range of mattresses and overlays – which includes solutions for immobile, critically ill and bariatric patients – have been developed in conjunction with clinicians and feature clinically proven technology that prevents pressure injuries from developing. They also promote the healing of established ulcers.
The new generation of mattresses are fully automatic and patients nursed upon them require less manual repositioning. Designed to mechanically replicate the body’s natural spontaneous movement in response to unrelieved pressure, they provide regular and complete pressure elimination to all parts of the body in contact with the mattress.
The company has focused on four key areas – microclimate control, patient safety and comfort, maximising infection control and offering additional nursing support. Additional features such as a touch screen visual display panel, comfort settings, timed static mode, audible and visual alarms, permanently inflated side formers, maximum inflation mode, and simplicity of decontamination for effective infection control provide benefits to both patients and busy nursing staff.
Two different mattress ranges are available from Rober, the premium NoDec® range and AirFlex®, a secondary ‘cost effective’ range of mattress solutions designed to fulfil the requirements of ‘affordable healthcare. Both ranges will be on show at Arab Health 2016.
Mike Hutson, Chief Executive of Rober, said: “Over the last few years we have invested heavily in R&D to create a full range of pressure ulcer solutions that cater for all types of patients, in different healthcare settings. I am delighted to now have the range complete and for it to be on show at Arab Health.”
“All of our technologies have been designed to offer maximum flexibility to patients who are at risk of pressure damage. They are effective and proven solutions in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers to help ‘stop the pressure’ and we are extremely excited to be showcasing them in the Middle East,” he added.
Arab Health will take place from 25th – 28th January 2016 at the Dubai International Convention &Exhibition Centre. The 2016 exhibition will showcase more than 4,000 companies exhibiting their latest innovations to more than 130,000 healthcare professionals attending from 163 countries.
