Bedsores (medically known as pressure ulcers or injuries) are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue, primarily caused by a combination of pressure, dragging and abrasion on the skin. They usually occur over a bony prominence such as the heel or hip bone.

They can happen to anyone, but usually affect people confined to bed or who sit in a chair or wheelchair for long periods of time. Older people are most susceptible.
Bedsores can lead to very serious, even life threatening, health consequences if left untreated. If you or anybody in your care has a bedsore, we strongly advise that you seek the advice of a nurse or doctor.
Parafricta products work by reducing the friction between your skin and the bed or chair. They are particularly useful for people who are restless and/or whose skin is rubbing against sheets or clothing.
