Therapeutic support surfaces are a critical component of pressure injury prevention and management. Knowledgeable complex rehab technology suppliers who can apply the latest research and standard terminology to the client’s circumstances are in a unique position to have a positive impact on the client’s health. Following a brief review of the applicable terminology, principles and best practices, participants will learn how to compare support surfaces from different manufacturers to choose the features that would benefit a specific client. Using a case-based approach, participants will explore applying research and best practices to the client’s situation to determine the best options.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will be able to describe the key support surface definitions and best practice recommendations.

Participants will be able to compare different products from different manufacturers in a clinically relevant way.

Participants will be able to apply best practices and product comparisons to several case studies to determine the best option for the client.
