Pressure relief cushions
Pressure sores or ulcers are skin lesions that can be more or less deep, caused by excessive and prolonged compression of the tissues that are in contact with the surface on which they rest.
When spending a lot of time sitting or lying down, there are areas that are in constant contact with the chair or bed. This can cause the blood to stop circulating properly and lead to ulcers.
To avoid these bedsores in people who spend a lot of time sitting, we can use pressure relief cushions, since they reduce the pressure of support and makes the blood circulation in the skin better.
Anti-decubitus cushions or pressure relief cushions are an essential product for a person with reduced mobility. With the pressure relief cushions cushions, a correct distribution of the pressures and a correct posture of the user are sought, with this we will help to prevent or cure pressure ulcers or sores.
There is a wide variety of anti-decubitus cushions. To decide which is the most suitable, the user's weight and height and their ability to move must be taken into account.
There are preventive pressure relief cushions, which are used by people with reduced mobility, who have not had pressure ulcers and are of normal weight. In this section we find the sheepskin cushions, the low-density memory foam pressure relief cushions and the low-cost liquid flotation pressure relief cushions.
On the other hand, we have pressure relief cushions for people without mobility, who have pressure ulcers, obese or very thin people. The most recommended and suitable anti-decubitus cushions in these cases are high-density memory foam, liquid flotation cushions, silicone pressure relief cushions or aircell pressure relief cushions.
Depending on the degree of bedsores that the person suffers, you must choose between one type of cushion or another.
Medium Low: When the risk of having bedsores is medium-low, the silicone pressure relief cushions or gel pressure relief cushions is usually used, since they serve to prevent pressure ulcers.
