Leader in Pressure Injury Prevention
WAFFLE® Brand Products have been used effectively for pressure injury prevention for more than a decade.
All Cushions are Not Created Equal
At EHOB, preventing pressure injuries is the foundation on which we were built over 35 years ago. It’s what we do. But we’re not your average device manufacturer. Founded by a physician, good patient outcomes have always been our driving force. It has to be. WAFFLE Support Surfaces deliver pressure redistribution that patients and caregivers can count on.
Turning and Repositioning Patients like a PRO
As a patient slides the pressure on the pelvis, coccyx, and sacrum increases. Interface pressure between skin and surface soars. But nurses can’t just pull patients back up to the head of the bed. For starters, heavy handling of fragile skin can lead to tears due to friction and shear forces. And caregivers are going to get hurt.
WOC Nurses to the Rescue in Acute Care Hospitals
Skin. The largest organ system in the human body and arguably the most important. While a person can live without some organs, the skin is non-negotiable. And caring for something this valuable is not a job for just anyone. Enter the WOC Nurse!
Patient Turning and Repositioning Doesn’t Have to Be Such a Pain
Ergonomics. It’s fun to say and has become quite the buzzword, but what does it really mean? Simply stated, Ergonomics is the science of designing work tasks to suit the capabilities of the worker. In relation to patient handling, it also involves tools and safety procedures designed to help lift and move patients. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), manual patient lifting is the single greatest risk factor for musculoskeletal injuries in healthcare workers. That hurts just thinking about it.
What We’re Made Of
At EHOB, we believe in the power of shared purpose. We see each day as a new opportunity to make something of value, and we’ve learned this along the way: we do it better together.
“I had tried pillows, back cushions, heat, and ice but found no relief until I used this cushion. I now have three, one for the car, one for my desk, and one for the entertainment room.”
