New Web Site On Bed Sore Prevention From Washington Twp. Firm

Specialty Medical Equipment, Inc., a family owned distributor of medical products designed to prevent so-called pressure sores, announced a new Web site at

The site has features such as an expanded medical education section concerning bed sores (decubitus ulcers), the causes, ramifications, prevention, and treatment options.

For the site’s elderly and sight impaired visitors, an easy to use ordering cart system and larger mattress pictures are also featured along with larger print.

The Washington Township-based company’s founder and president, Dan Shina, said he hopes to offer the medical community, long term care centers, nursing homes, hospitals, doctors, nurses, patients and their families a reliable, frequently updated site of medical information for their pressure sores, with answers, assistance and solutions concerning the condition.

The company’s products target ulcers with alternating pressure to stimulate blood flow around and near the wound tissue to assist in prevention and healing. The low air loss feature is designed to add comfort, and ventilation, that a solid mattress cannot. Alternating pressure and low air loss technologies are known to be most effective in assisting the healing and prevention process.
