For patients with complex conditions selection of the appropriate pressure redistributing mattress can be complicated by many factors. For groups at significant risk such as those in intensive or critical care, those at the end of life or those who it is difficult to reposition this selection becomes even more complex with only a small range of products able to meet the need to both prevent pressure damage and meet the rest of the patient’s care needs.
