Herradura ORTOPEL Cushion
Horseshoe product cushion ORTOPEL Line: affordable softness
Horseshoe cushion designed to prevent and relieve pressure ulcers problems on the contact surface.
ORTOPEL born under the concept of making an even more affordable product.
Based on the same material we use to manufacture our line Naturlamb SINTETIC, being a white enables us to manufacture a more affordable product. The bottom of the new line ORTOPEL is 100% cotton, this allows us to offer a product with “affordable Softness”.
The ORTOPEL heel has been based on the concept of offering a nice product of the same quality in terms of dressing and finishing.
Decubitus cushions recommended for those who must remain seated a long period of time. At the same time they are perfect for the prevention and treatment of fistulas, postpartum, haemorrhoids and bedsores in patients at risk of pressure ulcers.

Most pressure ulcers are preventable, so the best treatment of them can do is fight before they appear. Prevention is based on some basic principles, ranging from the supervision and care of the skin to the implementation of technical assistance, on which insist in a special way (Table 3).
