At Healthy Functions™, we believe that patients in hospitals, long term care, homecare, or in wheelchairs should not suffer from bedsores (decubitus sores). We’ve worked hard to develop a unique, safe and effective patient support surface that addresses all four physical causes of pressure ulcers:
- Excess moisture
- Shear forces dragging against the skin
- Heat build-up
- Constant pressure
Bedsores cause the deaths of more than 65,000 Americans each year, more than AIDS and breast cancer combined. Healthy Functions is committed to providing products that will help eliminate this unnecessary suffering.
Healthy Functions, LLC is developing the CircSupport™ mattress and mechanized wheelchair seat for both healthcare facilities and the homecare setting.
