Pressure Injury management and prevention equipment is a minefield for many OTs and can be time-consuming to locate the right equipment.
So how do we, as OTs, ensure that we can find a suitable care solution quickly, to help the clients onto their journey to independence without delay?
“We listen. Understanding the client’s individual concerns and circumstances is undoubtedly the first step.
Pressure Injuries can be preventable in the early stages. Matching the client’s health status to the right equipment is definitely the key to successfully managing Pressure Injuries.” explains Corinne Ikin, Novis Healthcare Educator for the NSW Hospital and Aged Care Facilities.
“Our role extends well beyond providing quality equipment for your clients. We can also provide equipment demonstration and training workshops in the prevention and management of pressure injuries and patient handling techniques.” Corinne adds.
Recently, Novis has added a new fleet of Star Air Cell Cushions to their Pressure Injury management arsenal.
To tackle Pressure Injuries, Novis equips the clients and prescribers a spectrum of solutions, from the ProCair alternating pressure mattresses, to Immedia slide sheets, to the new Star Air Cell Cushions.
