The prevention and treatment of individuals with pressure ulcers requires the implementation of a range of strategies to include assessment of risk factors and the provision of appropriate interventions. Clinical approaches should comprise repositioning of the patient and also the use of pressure redistributing devices. There is a range of support surfaces available. This review focuses on the currently available evidence for the use of the Repose mattress overlay and foot protector device. The outcome of the review identified that there is a breadth of clinically relevant research available to demonstrate the utilisation and effectiveness of these specific products.
