The following report describes the benefits to a 53-year old male patient with a 4 cm sacral sore being nursed at home.
Not only was the Parafricta® bedsheet much more comfortable for the patient, but also the absence of friction from movement on the sheet gave the bed sore a chance to heal, leading to a reduction in its size from 4 cm to 3 cm (as measured by the District Nurse) during the two weeks of the evaluation.
The patient and his carers expressed great satisfaction with this outcome.
"The pressure sore sheeting makes it very comfortable for moving around in a bed if you have to stay in bed for any period of time. The sheeting also gives bed sores a chance to heal so would not cause bed sores to start with. The sheeting used at present seems to cause friction and pulling of the skin causing bed sores and pain. Worldwide patients and staff would benefit by using pressure sore sheeting. The PS sheeting is easy to wash and is warm. Thank you for giving Mr W. the pressure sore sheeting. It is making his stay in bed now comfortable."
