Essential Healthcare has been chosen as the pressure area care partner for South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust, supplying 1,400 TREZZO™ reactive air un-powered hybrid surfaces, across the main acute sites within the Trust.

A multi-disciplinary ‘Task and Finish’ Group, established in August 2022, assessed several tender bids and clinically evaluated numerous alternative surfaces available. Following this robust review process, the Trust and key stakeholders saw first hand the benefits TREZZO™ reactive air provides patients, with high specification graphene enriched foam in combination with self-regulating air cells, for the prevention and treatment of pressures ulcers.

Implementation commenced in May 2023 with TREZZO™ reactive air replacing all powered hybrid surfaces in use. Staff will no longer need to step up and step down through the addition of a control unit, making TREZZO™ a safer option and early feedback indicates patient comfort improved almost immediately, with staff commenting that patients are much happier on the new surface.

Essential Healthcare would like to thank South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust for having confidence in us to become their pressure area care partner of choice and we look forward to many years working together.
