The eureka moment.
Like dolphins, humans have skin that’s very delicate and easily injured. Like dolphins, humans can suffer tissue damage when lying on certain surfaces. And like dolphins, humans can be injured by vertical shear forces.
Then came the eureka moment: Could the innovative technology that saved the dolphins do the same with humans?
The answer was yes. Yes indeed.
Dolphin FlS is now revolutionizing surfaces on hospital beds, operating room tables, stretchers, wheelchairs, and in bariatric and pediatric units. With good reason: Only Dolphin FIS simulates a fluid environment proven to maintain blood flow and prevent and treat pressure injuries across the care continuum.
The benefits – to patients and to healthcare practitioners and facilities – are substantial.
It’s a powerful example of what can happen when science and technology come together. With just a little help from dolphins.
