BL Stringer stocks a range of pressure care mattresses and cushions ideal for reducing the chance of pressure sores.
 
What causes Pressure Sores?
Bodyweight on a motionless surface. Steady pressure squeezes millions of capillaries, veins and lymphatics. Body fluids stagnate. Tissue cells starve and suffocate. The resulting ulcers are pressure sores.
 
Prevention:
Keep body fluids moving, turn patients, change pressure points. 
 
Pressure Care mattresses aid in the movement of body fluids, prevent skin breakdown and pressure ulcers in patients.
 
An alternating cycle of inflation helps redistribute pressure, maintaining and stimulating the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids.
