Learn How The Freedom Bed™ Helps Reduce Complications of Long-Term Immobility for those with Pressure Injuries (Bedsores)
One of the most prevalent medical issues associated with immobility is pressure ulcers, more commonly referred to a bedsores or pressure injuries. People who deal with the pain and discomfort of bedsores can also experience social isolation, insomnia, and even depression. As a result of prolonged pressure to tissue, bedsores are localized injuries to the skin that often develop on parts of the body that are typically bone - namely the heels, ankles, hips, and tailbone. They occur because of partially obstructed and limited blood flow to soft tissue, blocking the blood vessels that feed the skin.
Day-to-day challenges experienced by individuals living with long-term immobility can include immense pain, and if left untreated bedsores can lead to amputation and even death. Luckily, bedsores can be prevented and treated through turning and repositioning. The effectiveness of repositioning the body has been well documented since the 19th century. Restoring circulation and alleviating pressure on compressed tissue greatly reduces the negative effects and pain associated with bedsores, but the inability to reposition oneself presents new problems.
Full-time healthcare professionals, facility caregivers, or the dependence on family members can be both expensive and stressful for the individual affected, as well as their loved ones.
