Decubitus prevention


Decubitus prevention is consistent medical terminology in the world of care professionals. Decubitus can cause much inconvenience and pain and demands a lot of attention and nursing. Sometimes recovery can take a long period of time. Preventing decubitus is of great importance to people who have to sit all day and can't shift position. Think of wheelchair users and users of the socalled lift assist chair. 

Decubitus prevention and posture 

For these people decubitus prevention can be realised by offering a correct sitting posture and a good 
pressure distribution. In a very efficient way the Lewis sitting orthosis provides them a sitting posture that demands no or little energy therefore generating the risk on tissue damage to a minimum.
A correct posture diminishes the peak pressure on the coccyx (tailbone) and the ischial tuberosities.

Lewis Seating Systems prevents decubitus

In a biomechanical way the anti-decubitus sitting orthosis of Lewis Seating Systems transfers the pressure on the coccyx (tailbone) and the ischial tuberosities to the upper leg and therefore realises a good pressure distribution. A correct pressure distribution sees to it that the sensitive parts on the seat area are less burdened and therefore that this pressure is been taken over by parts less sensitive.
