Paediatric & Lightweight Individuals
Lightweight patients are vulnerable to developing a pressure injury as they have minimal body fat (the body’s natural protection against pressure injuries). With reduced fat, pressure from bony prominences is much more damaging, leading to the development of pressure injuries a lot quicker.
Mattresses for paediatric clients need to offer pressure care appropriate for a lightweight, as well as providing safety. Safety and entrapment is a key concern with paediatric clients.
