Pioneering Simplicity in Pressure Injury Prevention

With the overall prevalence of pressure ulcers standing at 9.3%1 and costs to treat ranging from $21,000 - $152,0002, pressure injuries are serious, costly and yet preventable.

Effecting more than 2.5 million patients in the United States each year, in hospitals alone2, improving the implementation of preventative interventions has never been more important.

At Frontier Therapeutics, we understand the challenges you face on a daily basis, and we want to help.

With a well-established range of products that will simply and effectively support your pressure ulcer prevention strategy, improve quality of care and ultimately help to reduce pressure ulcer prevalence3, the Frontier Therapeutics Team invite you to join them in Booth #155 or to book a private appointment via WOCNext 2020 REIMAGINED.

We very much look forward to meeting you.

  • Repose® Flex fully off-loads the heels, while also taking care of the knee, by placing it in a 5°-10° bend, which helps to reduce the risk of developing a deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

    Repose Flex follows the shape of the calf, which means pressure is redistributed across the surface of the lower leg, protecting the Achilles tendon.

    Repose Flex is positioned at the foot end of the bed and can be attached to the mattress with the integrated strap.
