Andy Robinson, Ultimate Healthcare’s Product Development Manager, has been responsible for designing standard and bariatric turning mattresses.

 

Ultimate Healthcare’s NEW Heritage II Digital Turn Mattress, provides optimal therapy for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers for patients up to 255kg/40stone. The system combines a very high risk dynamic mattress with the additional feature of a full, left or right lateral turn function of up to 30 degrees to assist manual or provide automatic turning at variable times between 5 – 30 minutes, reducing interface pressures by up to 50%, resulting in greater stimulation to the capillaries. It also incorporates Low Air Loss to reduce skin heat and moisture.

The NEW Liberty II Bariatric Advance Turn also provides optimal therapy for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers but is specifically aimed at bariatric users with reduced mobility weighing up to 450kg/70stone.The 1200mm width surface systemis similar to the Heritage II Digital Turn in the way that it combines a very high risk dynamic mattress with the additional feature of a full, left or right lateral turn function to assist manual or provide automatic turning at variable times between 10-90 minutes. The difference is the fact that it turns the patient up to 40 degrees and incorporates True Low Air Loss for therapy and to reduce skin heat and moisture.

 

The Liberty II Bariatric Advance also offers a pulsating therapy mode which helps to provide greater pressure relief and management of oedema.

 

Ultimate Healthcare believes that the development of the turning mattresses will benefit existing, new and future customers in the fight against pressure injury as well as reduce costs.

 

“Our new range of dynamic turning mattresses will give users an improved standard of care whilst improving efficiencies for carers without sacrificing safety. Single-Handed Care not only provides a significant cost saving but also promotes independence and dignity” Andy Robinson

We are proud to be the main sponsor of the fourth annual CHASE (Care Home Achievement Success Event) award for React to Red in Bassetlaw where many hard-working people were honoured in various categories.

 

Geraldine Reevell  and Tessa Anders the React to Red coordinators organised the awards on behalf of Nottingham NHS Healthcare Trust and selected the winners.

 

The event was another huge success.

 

Our sales manager Andy Robinson and business development manager Trisha Hayes have worked hard over the past year alongside the tissue viability team. They have provided pressure mapping analysis, clinical trials and care home training across all of the 28 homes in the region, covering all staff.

 

Geraldine commented:React to Red Cover

"A lot of the awards were nominated by the staff themselves. I would like to give a massive thank you to all involved. Keep up the good work and keep inspired."

 

Geraldine and Tessa run the React to Red programme. Their aim is to reduce the number of pressure ulcers among care home residents. Their train-the-trainer approach in tackling pressure ulcers is the first in the county to do so. As a result of their efforts, all care homes they work with have had a dramatic fall in the number of residents suffering from pressure ulcers.
