Pressure reducing pads help protect the skin in at-risk patients as part of a pressure ulcer prevention program. Our shaped pads are made from silicone. Silicone is flexible, hardwearing and has the ability to redistribute pressure to protect the skin on bony prominences such as the heel or sacrum.
These pads are comfortable, yet hardwearing, shown to withstand autoclave temperatures of 121°C without losing their properties. However, we simply recommend that you wash with soap and water – enabling them to be reused on the same patient and helping to reduce the cost of pressure ulcer prevention even further.
