An Innovation in Pressure Injury Prevention
Our research into pressure injury (ulcer) prevention found that by distributing body weight across many minor points of alternating contact, the conditions which promote healthy skin tissue perfusion may be enhanced. Dabir technology targets the key circulatory components of arterial, venous, and lymphatic blood flow with a revolutionary nodal support technology that can potentially aid in the fight against pressure injuries.
The Dabir alternating air pressure (AP) support surfaces are comprised of rows of geometric air-filled nodes that alternate by inflating and deflating to provide tissue offloading. These innovative solutions have been clinically demonstrated to mitigate the effects of deep tissue deformation and skin shear to prevent pressure injuries.
Dabir Surgical System
The Dabir Surgical System provides whole body skin protection for patients in the perioperative setting. Furthermore, this innovative solution has been clinically demonstrated to mitigate the effects of deep tissue deformation and skin shear to prevent pressure injuries.
Dabir Patient Care Plus® System
The Dabir Patient Care Plus System is an innovative solution to pressure injury prevention for the patient care setting. In addition, the system provides whole body skin protection for patients outside the perioperative setting. As a result, this system has been clinically demonstrated to mitigate the effects of deep tissue deformation and skin shear to prevent pressure injuries.
