Delivering comfort, changing lives
Founded on our Brand Ambassador, Ben Woodcock’s personal quest to develop a pressure care solution for his two-year-old daughter more than 23 years ago, OSKA’s pressure care mattresses have, and continue to be, designed from our considerable experience in this field.
At the heart of our extensive R&D programme, are the close relationships we have with some of the UK’s leading Tissue Viability Nurse Specialists and eminent complex wound clinicians. These collaborative partnerships underpin our commitment to designing and manufacturing world class pressure care solutions, driven by cutting edge technology and innovation. We listen so you can have what you need.
Our fresh approach to pressure care prevention means partnering with OSKA will deliver considerable benefits designed to meet the challenges you face at the forefront of patient and resident needs.
Care professionals know that reactive treatment is always more costly than prevention. Rather than firefighting as issues arise, a well-thought-out 360° holistic approach, tailored to the specific needs of your setting, is the most cost-effective route to a sustainable and relevant solution that delivers comfort and changes lives.
