Preventing pressure ulcers

It can be difficult to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.

These include:

  • Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
  • Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – your care team will do this if you’re in a hospital or care home
  • Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
  • Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation

If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.

SmartGEL and smartx3D – THE PERFECT COMBINATION

OFFERS UNPRECEDENTED COMFORT AND DURABILITY
Unlike two-dimensional fabrics, smartx3D uses a three-layer technology that includes two separate fabrics joined by a monofilament yarn that creates a breathable channel between the two fabrics. It is this channel that gives smartx3D its 3D structure and creating a “micro-climate” between layers. Heat and vapour move easily through the highly permeable fabric layer.  smartx3D naturally offers a four-way stretch which provides enhanced immersion, aiding in pressure redistribution. Soft, breathable, and with moisture-wicking properties, smartx3D offers the ultimate in comfort.

  • Pill resistant and durable
  • Antimicrobial capabilities are built into the fabric and will not wash out
  • Improves immersion/envelopment
  • Reduces shear
  • 4 way stretch with 100% recovery
  • 20 times more air permeable than standard fabrics

The 3D construction enhances the fabric’s breathability, which in turn dissipates heat, keeping the wheelchair user cooler and dry.

The combination of NXT’s smartx3D fabric and smartGEL foam provides the ultimate in comfort and support

Smart GEL

NXT Seating products Our smartGEL foam offers a higher IFD (Indent Force Deflection and Density), yet it is incredibly soft, highly resilient, and long-lasting. smartGEL is a Visco Elastic foam that is infused with gel. The gel is incorporated into the foam mixture at the molecular level, which allows for 100% homogeneous cooling with no breakdown of embedded gel beads.

  • Reduces surface temperature, drawing heat away from the skin
  • Provides superior comfort and softness
  • Highly resilient and long-lasting
  • Higher IFD (Indent Force Deflection and density)
  • The gel is 100% infused into the foam mixture vs. embedded “gel beads”
