How does it work?

Repose® is a range of reactive air, pressure redistribution and reduction support surfaces, all with high levels of immersion and envelopment (see diagram).  A combination of unique materials and Smart Valve Technology has been clinically proven to deliver statistically significant patient benefits1-5.

Unlike, other reactive air products and dynamic systems, through Randomised Control Trials, Repose reduces peak and average pressures and consistently delivers low levels of Pressure Injury incidence, in a cost-effective, easy to use system1-5.

Repose® is suitable for the treatment and prevention of all stages of pressure injuries

Low levels of pressure injury incidence

Repose® consistently shows low levels of pressure injury incidence across multiple studies, Repose® works! Patients are twice as likely to sustain pressure damage from the use of dynamic systems1, Repose® should be considered for any patient at risk when used as part of a package of care.

Clinically effective

The Repose® range of pressure redistribution solutions is endorsed by an extensive library of clinical evidence to support the prevention and management of pressure injuries.

Clinically proven to reduce pressure injury incidence in comparison to dynamic systems1, Repose successfully supports pressure injury prevention strategy.

Repose® protects patients at all levels of risk from at risk > very high risk and can be used for the prevention and treatment of all stages of pressure injury.

New RCT Evidence Confirms Repose® as Gold Standard for Pressure Injury Prevention

New RCT evidence confirms Repose® as gold standard for pressure injury prevention and the new EPUAP/NPIAP Guidelines recommend Health Care Professionals consider using a reactive air mattress or overlay for individuals at risk of developing pressure injuries.

Repose® Flex

Utilising immersion and envelopment, Repose Flex is designed to place the knee in slight flexion (5° to 10°) and allow complete heel offloading, while effectively re-distributing the weight of the patient’s leg across its surface1.

By placing the knee in slight flexion (5° to 10°), the risk of Popliteal Vein Compression at the rear of the knee is reduced2.

Popliteal Vein Compression is a significant source of Deep Vein Thrombosis for patients undergoing surgery or prolonged bed rest3.

Repose® Foot Protector Plus

Repose Foot Protector and Foot Protector Plus are designed specifically to minimise the risk of pressure damage to heels by providing complete offloading.

The ventilation and visual inspection panel of Repose Foot Protector Plus provide ventilation of the foot and allow for easy visual inspection of the heel for wound observation and monitoring.

Repose Foot Protector Plus is fitted with a unique multi-adjustable air-filled strap incorporating magnets. ‘Magnaffix’ retains the product quickly and easily and is easy to clean and remove. The magnets have been sealed within the air cell pocket barrier preventing direct contact with the patient’s skin, to minimise the risk of any pressure or skin tear damage.

New sizes include the Repose Foot Protector Small and Repose Foot Protector Extra Small.
