Those who are disabled or obese and spend much of their time in a seated position are particularly prone to pressure sores. When a person is seated in the same position for a long time a large amount of pressure is placed on the skin, disrupting the flow of blood and nutrients to the area, which leads to an ulcer forming. Bedsores are painful, but can be minimised or even avoided with the right aids.
Here at UKS Mobility we understand the issues faced by those with limited mobility, which is why we stock a fully comprehensive selection of equipment designed to make life easier and more enjoyable for disabled and elderly people and their carers.
