Domus 4/ Domus Auto have proven to be effective in preventing pressure injury and achieved great customer satisfaction based on a 35-day clinical study in France.
Apex Medical, the global medical solution provider and Nukléus as the independent scientific partner presented the study result from a clinical trial which was to observe the prevention of pressure injury in 86 patients using Domus 4/ Domus Auto for 35 days, the dynamic pressure redistribution systems from APEX. The trial was executed in 4 nursing homes and 1 geriatric long-term care centre in France.
A positive result demonstrates that, among the 86 patients at medium to high risk of pressure injuries, 0% of the patients developed a pressure injury and 100% of the group rated the sound level of the mattress product as satisfactory or very satisfactory. (See Table 1.)
Table 1. Patient’s assessment of the sound level of the mattress-N=85* (*1 patient did not answer the question)
The care team found Domus 4/ Domus Auto very easy or easy in the majority of cases, the implementation (100%), maintenance (100%), use in terms of repositioning of patient (97.7%) and use in terms of moving patient to sit up (96.5%). (see Table 2.)

“Our focus on innovating the best solutions for patients at risk of or suffering from pressure injuries is further supported by the positive user experience of these clinical findings. We will keep providing better solutions for our professional partners and patients” said by Thierry Darras, the Director-General of APEX France.
