Starfish of Sweden

Starfish of Sweden is developing a completely new medtech solution for preventing pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers are a painful and difficult-to-treat condition, requiring physically demanding work patient management for the staff. The condition is common among patients in nursing homes and elder care where approximately 50% referred to primary care develop pressure ulcers. This unique concept means a completely new and revolutionary way of tackling this difficult problem. The product concept shows promising results for preserving the integrity of the skin in healthcare and large consumer and industrial markets. Starfish of Sweden is developing a broad product portfolio, ready for the market needs of the future.

The technical design of the Starfish concept provides improved dermal circulation and also minimizes heat and moisture concentrations – the three main factors known to contribute to the development of pressure ulcers. The material does not conduct heat, is washable, tolerates fluid accumulations, has high fire safety, longer durability and is developed from a sustainable perspective.
