In response to this, Invacare has listened to customers and developed a collaborative approach to education to create awareness on the care of mattresses.
Research and Development
During this time, Invacare has also been undertaking material research with an aim to significantly reduce mattress failures and increase the return on investment of pressure reducing equipment.
New Material Technology
The research resulted in the development of a new cover fabric, developed alongside a leading material manufacturer. It has been on trial in a number of NHS trusts for the past year and has shown excellent performance.
European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Meeting
Be the first to see our new mattress cover technology by visiting us at the forthcoming EPUAP Conference in Cardiff, 19th-21st September 2012. Invacare will also be holding a symposium at the conference (11am on Friday 21st September) and will demonstrate the science behind the fabric, our education programme and the results obtained from the recent trials.
Invacare has been supporting Clinicians for over 20 years and strives to continue this close working partnership. We are committed to working with you to develop innovative products that can withstand the demands of the healthcare industry.
