Additional Information

Brand & Trade Names

  • Action Action Products Inc range of pressure care products are derived from an ultra-soft synthetic rubber-like material, called Akton® polymer. This unique, shock-absorbing material was invented by the company's founder, Dr. McElroy, in his pursuit to develop padding that would help prevent pressure sores in immobilized patients. Sumed have worked with Action Products Inc since 1993 when it started to import the Ergonest and Primenest cushion range. Action Products Inc now provide us with a full range of polymer based seating, overlay and continuity of care products pressure care products
  • Cilguard Cilguard® is a range of polyurethane foam dressings with soft silicone adhesion, gentle enough to suit the most delicate skin, effective enough to deal with the most challenging of chronic wounds - saving you money too. Cilguard® is designed to gently but firmly adhere to the skin surrounding the wound and will absorb exudate whilst minimising the risk of maceration. Excellent feedback from Customers
  • Ciltech The silicone solution to scarring……. Hypertrophic and keloid scarring following surgery, burns or accidental trauma can present difficulties for the sufferer, both in terms of cosmetic appearance and sometimes with reduced functionality or movement of the affected area
  • Flowform The Flowform® brand is a Sumed® brand. The Sumed® bath cushion and Sumed® Ultra 90 were rebranded Flowform® in 2010. The Flowform® module was designed to create an effective pressure relieving surface which could take pressure away from the ischial tuberosities and sacral area by adapting to the available body shape and increasing the surface area over which to disperse pressure. Flowform® liquid has a viscous consistency and the envelope of the module is constructed with the addition of spot welded areas which prevent “hammocking” occurring between bony prominences. Flowform® Bathing and seating range are manufactured in Hadfield, Derbyshire at our office.
  • Fortuna The Fortuna Heavy Duty Wheelchair range. One of the main features is the option of webbing for the seat and back supports. The seat webbing is adjustable to reduce any slack and can be used to help obtain the optimum seating position. The back support webbing is similarly adjustable and can be used to further help positioning and accommodate the user's shape. As a further aid to user comfort and safety, a removable foot plate is supplied that fits onto and over the standard foot rests. This enables the user to position their feet in a more dignified manner and ensures that the weight bearing is directed to the hanger mounts and not the ends of the footrests. The Fortuna's relevance to skin care is simply that correct positioning is essential in your holistic approach to pressure care and the unique features found in this range enable better care of this aspect of skin care
  • Integrity Integrity® is our new advanced performance Alternating Dynamic Replacement Mattress System suitable for the prevention and management of all grades of pressure damage for clients up to 28 stones (178kg).
  • Primenest 2 High envelopment architecture with stability specifically designed for the active user
  • Roho ROHO medical cushions and mattresses mimic the properties of water, in a dry, air-fluid environment. This technology has been proven in countless clinical studies to assist in effectively healing, as well as preventing, pressure sores. Roho is one of the best performing products in the world. Its unique technology and Isoflow valving give us a seating product that positions, as well as protects, our clients. Their low air pressure mattressing provides cost effective prevention of pressure sores for use in community and acute care settings. Sumed are proud to work with The Roho Group and have been their distributor since 2002.

  • Tempur The TEMPUR® Material is a visco-elastic, temperature sensitive open cell material which has unique pressure relieving qualities. Unlike ordinary polyurethane which features irregular cell shapes that simply compress under weight and degenerate over a short period of time, the TEMPUR® Pressure Relieving Material is composed of billions of visco-elastic spherical shaped, open cells. The cells respond to body temperature and weight then shift and reorganize their position to mould to the exact contours of the patient's body. Tempur is one of the best known brands world-wide and their comprehensive cushion and mattressing range complements perfectly our product portfolio.
  • Viscotech Our Viscotech range was developed and manufactured in conjunction with Vitacare Ltd - the specialist medical division of Vitafoam Limited, the UK's market leader in cellular polymer technology. Viscotech uses the very latest foam and visco-elastic technology to provide a comprehensive range of low-cost seating and mattressing products.
  • XSensor Xsensor pressure imaging systems are used in numerous medical environments to assist healthcare professionals in measuring dynamic interface pressure between patients and a variety of support surfaces. Specifically, interface pressure imaging sensors provide objective measurement to assist clinicians in understanding how positioning, support surfaces and alterations can impact a patient's circulatory, recovery and well being. Xsensor systems enhance the quality of patient care by providing risk assessment via mapping of support surfaces and can help as part of your protocols to reduce the incidence of pressure sores within the Community or Acute setting. With the costs of healing a pressure sore estimated at £40,000.00 (British Healthcare Trades Association), the investment in one of these systems is very quickly repaid. Accurate assessment of product choice leads to time saving and reduced future healthcare costs.
