Anti-bedsore systems for preventive care and therapy

Preventive care is better than healing. This motto also applies to decubitus problems. Anti-bedsore preventive care is so important because the therapeutic process can be long and difficult.

Mechanical respiration at home offers many advantages to patients
For people with chronic pulmonary diseases, or diseases of the respiratory tract or respiratory muscles, mechanical respiration at home can alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. When choosing the right system, it is important to take individual needs into account.
Patients with a chronic undersupply of oxygen frequently suffer from shortness of breath, headaches, sleep disorders and rapid exhaustion. The inflow of oxygen via respiratory devices helps alleviate symptoms and increase mobility and performance and can prolong life, depending on the form of illness.
Enteral nutrition secures the supply of fluid and nutrients for people who are unable to eat and drink in sufficient quantities – temporarily or permanently.
Age-related chewing difficulties, swallowing difficulties and problems resulting from a stroke, injuries or cancer in the mouth and throat areas, loss of weight due to illness or unconsciousness can make artificial feeding necessary. When patients are still able to drink, the nutrients required are frequently supplied in the form of medical nutrient drinks. These are available in versions that are tailor-made to many indications and with different tastes.

Wound care for people with a disability or illness
Professional wound care can accelerate the healing process among people with a disability or illness and improve the quality of life of those affected. The REHAB offers the ideal platform for presenting and discussing the wide range of wound care options available.
Acute and chronic wounds must be treated professionally, in order to facilitate healing, prevent infections and alleviate pain. For bedridden patients, it is essential that wounds are treated after pressure loads and blood flow disorders. Chronic wounds can also arise as a result of leg ulcers or a diabetic foot. They require treatment at the correct time intervals in close cooperation with all those involved. For this reason, extensive consultation is required with regard to wound treatment for people with disabilities or an illness and their relatives.
