It's all about the Base
A breathable base will work harmoniously with the support surface cover and core for optimum moisture vapour transfer.

Consider the other factors for your base fabric – a grabby base will ‘stick’, which could help to prevent patient falls, while a slippy base has a higer coefficien of friction, allowing easier patient transfers. Read more here

Trelleborg Engineered Coated Fabrics will also present a poster at the European Pressure Ulcer Advisroy Panel (EPUAP) conference in Lyon, France in September, outlining how a Dartex® base fabric performs compared to a vinyl base.

Message in a bottle
Every minute humans use one million plastic bottles and only seven percent are reused. As part of the Trelleborg Group ambition to eliminate single-use plastics from all Trelleborg sites around the World by the end of 2020, staff at our Nottingham factory received new reuseable water bottles and thermal mugs this quarter to use instead of disposable plastic cups.
