Pressure Ulcer Management At Every Stage

Mon, 04/06/2009 - 8:09am
Gaymar Industries introduces the Sof•Care® Stretcher Overlay. The stretcher is designed to help patients against pressure ulcers during transport, and while waiting in emergency departments, operating rooms, post-anesthesia care units and other stages of care. Using Sof•Care three-layer air-channeling technology to redistribute patient weight, the overlay immerses the patient in over 300 air cells and prevents bottoming even when the head of the stretcher is raised, helping to keep ulcers from forming and allow existing ulcers to heal.

According to the company, features of the overlay include:

  • Availability in 27- and 30-in. widths.
  • 3 adjustable straps to secure the overlay to the stretcher and help prevent patient falls. Sturdy, molded hand welds located on each side of the overlay to facilitate patient repositioning.
  • Smooth, durable vinyl that is easy to clean for repeated use by the same patient. Availability of 3 inflation options.
