Low friction fabric bedding to aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers (bedsores)
Parafricta® Bedding incorporates a 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 skin breakdown conditions in which patients may gain benefit from a low friction fabric sheet, including for burns patients post skin grafting.
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.
