Share Article

InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is working to submit Pressure Pad to companies for their review.

PITTSBURGH...An inventor from Upper Marlboro, Md., is a caregiver, and he's familiar with several elderly people who have died due to infection of pressure ulcers caused by sitting on bedpans. "In order to prevent this horrible problem, I came up with the PRESSURE PAD," he said.

This accessory enables a person to use a bedpan in a more comfortable and safer manner. It reduces pressure and resulting injuries such as ulcers, sores and skin tears. As a result, it helps prevent infection and even fatality.

Ergonomic, easy to use and serving as an alternative to conventional bedpan accessories, the PRESSURE PAD promotes peace of mind and is ideal for bedridden patients, hospitals, nursing homes and caregivers.

The original design was submitted to the Washington, D.C. office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
