Bed sores, also referred to as pressure ulcers, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers, are a significant problem in hospitals and nursing homes, with regard to both the rising rate of occurrence (and financial expense) as well as prevention & treatment responsibility for caregivers.
Jonathan Rosenfeld, J.D. (Illinois, U.S.A.) has developed a helpful website, Bed Sore FAQs, to help those affected by bed sores to navigate the various aspects of the condition. From pressure ulcer prevention and treatment products to internet resources and legal considerations, BedSoreFAQ.com offers a wealth of information on the subject.

Just like with bed sores, decubitus ulcers also affect people who rely on wheelchairs for daily living. Tamarack Habilitation Technologies’ new GlideWear™ Seating Interface product is designed to significantly reduce shear strain against the skin, under bony prominences, where friction and pressure sores typically occur; resulting in a greater margin of safety and long-lasting skin protection.
