The presence of pressure ulcers is seen as a key indicator of quality (Department of Health, 1993) and they are both costly to the patient (Franks, 2001) and the NHS. It is important that resources are directed towards prevention rather than treatment, which makes the provision of pressure-relieving equipment an integral part of any strategy for the prevention and management of pressure ulcers.
