Pressure Prevention

Pressure Prevention

Pressure points can develop on skin and soft tissue when pressed against a harder surface, such as a chair or bed, for a prolonged time. This pressure reduces the blood supply to the area can in turn, cause the skin tissue in this area to become damaged or die. When this happens, a pressure ulcer may form.

You have a risk of developing a pressure ulcer if you:

  • Spend most of your day in a bed or a chair with minimal movement
  • Are overweight or underweight
  • Are not able to control your bowels or bladder
  • Have decreased feeling in an area of your body
  • Spend a lot of time in one position

if you are at risk to develop skin breakdown, consider preventative maintenance with quality wheelchair cushions and bed overlays that help alleviate pressure points.
