(lat. decubare = to lie)
Medical: Trophic tissue disorders caused by external (long-term) pressure with compression of vessels and local ischemia
(especially skin and subcutaneous tissue) with necrosis, maceration, possible infection;
General: A decubitus is a pressure ulcer that occurs, among other things, with long-lasting
pressure is created.
The vernacular speaks of “lying sore”.
With soft positioning, the weight causes the material on the contact surfaces of the mattress to give way.
The patient sinks into the aid, the support surface increases. The larger area reduces the pressure on the skin and tissue.
The tissue is less compressed and pulled (shearing), the blood circulation in the final flow path can improve.
However, at the same time, this working principle reduces the patient’s ability to perform spontaneous movements. Soft positioning fixes the sunken body regions through increasing embedding and thus impedes the patient’s own movement.
When developing our products, we attach particular importance to therapeutic effectiveness and user-friendliness.
For this reason, our hoist slings are specially tailored to the individual needs of patients with restricted mobility.
We offer individual solution concepts for children, adults, light or heavy patients, in the home care sector, in care institutions or clinics.
The use of systems for Apparative Intermittent Compression (AIK) has become standard in modern
medical care for lymphedema and lipedema.
A powerful compressor with intelligent control ensures that liquid is removed effectively and gently at the same time. The pressure and duration of therapy can be precisely adjusted to the patient and their needs.
Due to the convincing treatment successes, the Varilymph 12 Pro sets new standards in device-based decongestion therapy.
