Kids Care is Levabo’s range of pressure-relieving paediatric and neonatal products.
Developed in collaboration with leading Danish wound nurses, the range ensures optimal comfort and hygiene in the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers.
There are no Danish figures on the extent of pressure ulcers in children, but international studies indicate that up to 75% of hospitalised children have pressure ulcers*.
The vast majority of pressure injuries in children are related to the use of medical devices that are fixed to children as part of treatment or life support. These include peripheral venous catheters, ventilation equipment and plaster casts. But also bearing-related pressure injuries on the head, heels and ears occur frequently.
