What is pressure care?

The aim is to maintain healthy skin and thus prevent breakdown and the development of pressure ulcers. A pressure ulcer is a localised injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence. The 4 main factors implicated are interface pressure, shear, friction, and moisture. Pressure ulcers can range in severity from patches of discoloured skin to open wounds that expose the underlying bone or muscle. – source NHS UK

Can your rise and recline chairs provide pressure area care?

If required, it is CRITICAL to use a chair that has been measured and adjusted to the size and shape of the individual. Correct Posture leads to maximising the contact area which in turn minimises pressure on the body parts. Occupational Therapists and Specialists will advise repositioning every 2 hours and the use of significant tilt angles (up to 45 degrees) which can achieve pressure reductions, particularly in the pelvic area. The aim is to balance the challenges of comfort and pressure management with posture control and individual independence, the results is a comprehensive range of rise and recline chairs all available to view on our website

Where can I identify legislation and national guidelines affecting pressure area care?

When asked this question is asked locally, we always refer people to the Governance e-manual that provides advice and guidance on all aspects of governance in the NHS in Wales. Other useful Government guidance and evidence-based advice on the prevention and management of pressure ulcers can be found online at the Government Website.
