Action® Pressure Management Range available from Central Medical Supplies

Promotional feature

The Action® range of pressure ulcer prevention products is exclusively available in the UK from Central Medical Supplies Ltd (CMS). CMS has worked with Action® for over thirty-five years and to celebrate this lengthy partnership is currently offering discounts on Action® products, subject to availability.

Action® is a pioneer in reusable pads and positioning products and its pressure relief products provide the ultimate prevention for pressure sores. Action® uses its exclusive, patented Akton® viscoelastic polymer for its pressure ulcer prevention products. This unique Akton® polymer is designed to prevent capillary closure through the redistribution of pressure, mitigate shear forces and reduce the risk of tissue trauma. Akton® is a cost effective, clinically proven latex free composite. It is resistant to infectious growth, as well as being flame and leak resistant.

The Action® range features numerous pads designed for every surgical procedure. Products include theatre table overlays, head pads, chest rolls, heel supports and paediatric positioners.

Approximately 12 to 25 per cent of patients with a hospital acquired pressure ulcer develop them during surgical procedures. Studies reveal that one in twelve patients undergoing surgical procedures lasting more than three hours will develop postoperative pressure ulcers within four days. Pressure ulcers produce needless pain and suffering for patients, have a negative impact on the patient’s quality of life and can last for months at a time.
