    {ArabHealth} A Mattress to Protect Patients Against Pressure


    At the ArabHealth 2017 exhibition, U.K. pressure ulcer specialist Rober presented an innovative mattress that prevents injuries for immobile patients by changing continuously and dynamically its configuration.

    The NoDec Wizard relies on two kinds of therapy methods, which can be used separately or together: a 3 cell-cycle with V-shaped air cells that deflate, retracting from bodily contact; and a lateral rotation therapy that continuously changes contact points.

    Patient management is made possible through a touch screen where caregivers can adjust cell pressures depending on patient’s weight and position.
