TREZZO HS with DURA-last system has been shown to substantially reduce dynamic mattress usage and may be a cost-effective way of reducing the likelihood of pressure ulceration in vascular and stroke patients.”
“For pressure ulcer prevention, the ability of foams to control the immersion and envelopment of patients is essential’ Dr. Sa Soppi (2015)
TREZZO HS with DURA-last uniqueness is in its graphene open-cell foam structure renowned for its superior strength and endothermic superior heat conductive properties. 10.000 times better than normal foam allowing heat to dissipate.
Maintaining skin temperature is paramount for patients. It has been suggested that elevations in the skin temperature may also lead to skin and soft tissue damage, perhaps through a weakening of the epidermis.
TREZZO HS with DURA-last open cell structure improves airflow by up to 95% in comparison to other types of foam. In addition, it allows TREZZO to rapidly return to its resting position when the load is removed or reduced as the patient moves.
People at high risk of developing pressure ulcers should use higher-specification foam mattresses rather than standard hospital foam mattresses (McInnes et al., 2015).
When choosing a support system, it is essential that the system allows for ease of use for staff and provides a comfortable and temperature-controlled environment for the patient. The microclimate has been recognized as an important property of support systems in the prevention of pressure damage.
Yusuf et al. (2015) who report in their study the importance of maintaining the microclimate, that increasing temperature as a microclimate variable has a relationship with the development of pressure ulcers and superficial skin changes.
