Our aim is to assist healthcare professionals with pressure ulcer prevention

Invacare - A Trusted Manufacturer and Supplier
Invacare is a global leader in the manufacture and supply of Healthcare Equipment to the Acute and Primary Care sectors. The company has been operating in the Healthcare market for over 100 years.
Following Invacare's acquisition of Medical Support Systems (MSS), Invacare has retained all key personnel involved in the development of the range that today is synonymous with quality and clinical efficacy. These experts in the 'Static Led Approach' are today at the heart of our Research and Development team. With over 25 years experience in the field, the R&D team is responsible for the creation of all of Invacare's core pressure area care products, including the market leading Softform® Premier.
Invacare's inspiration for the 'Static Led Approach', involved detailed research with leading clinicians from over 15 NHS Trusts and some of the UK's top Universities. This core message has now been adopted by many as an effective pressure ulcer reduction strategy.
