Prevention of pressure ulcers

We are committed to preventing pressure ulcers and helping patients, families and carers to manage pressure ulcers more effectively.

Pressure ulcers result in a marked reduction of quality of life and can be painful and hard to heal, creating significant difficulties for patients, as well as their families and carers.
