Bedding to aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers and bedsores
Parafricta® Bedding incorporates a smart, strong, breathable, silk-like, low-friction, proprietary fabric that reduces the risk of friction and shear-related skin breakdown and can also assist users to turn in bed with less difficulty.
The bedding can provide all-round protection to skin on the body and head that is vulnerable to pressure ulcers caused by friction and shear. There are other fragile skin conditions in which patients may gain benefit from a low friction fabric sheet, notably for burns patients.
Some of the sheets are designed to make self-repositioning and moving and handling by carers easier. Additionally, a moving and handling sheet system incorporating Parafricta® low friction fabric is available from Care-Ability.
Specialist neonatal intensive care unit products are available to protect the very fragile skin of pre-28 week premature neonates.
The Parafricta® bedding range is available for purchase from our online store. Please use the User guide to select the most suitable product.
