NRS Healthcare run a government-backed scheme that means you may not be required to pay the VAT on some of your purchases of products from NRS Healthcare at the time you order and complete your purchase. However, as you would expect, not all purchases by all customers are eligible; so here is the very important information on how this scheme works: A purchase can only be exempt from VAT when all the following conditions are met:
1. You (or who you are buying it for) are chronically ill or disabled , this means someone:
With a physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect upon his or her ability to carry out everyday activities, or
With a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes.
Who is terminally ill.
It does not include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb
2. The goods are for personal or domestic use, this means:
The goods are supplied for your own private use, rather than for business purposes.
The goods are not made widely available for a whole group of people.
The products that are eligible to be supplied at the zero VAT rate, are identified on the shopping basket page with a check box and you must tick the box indicating you wish to claim VAT-exemption on that item, then click the "update basket" button before you can Proceed to Checkout.
You currently have no items in your shopping basket.
Pressure Relief Care
Make sitting and resting more comfortable with our range of pressure relieving aids. Cushioned supports can provide effective pressure care management to sore or delicate limbs, whilst our extensive range of cushions can be placed into your favourite chair to provide critical support and relieve pressure. Sleeping is also enhanced with our range of innovative mattress overlays to relieve pressure for a good night's sleep.
If someone remains sedentary or in the same position for a long period of time, pressure can build up which causes the skin and the tissue below it to become damaged. Pressure ulcers are common for those who cannot or struggle to move as there is no way to relieve the pressure.
Pressure Care Products from NRS
Preventing pressure sores is far more effective than treating them. Preventing pressure sores causes the patient far less pain and discomfort and allows them to live without distress. If a pressure ulcer does occur, treatment can be very intensive and can require specialist equipment; such as an alternating pressure mattress or cushion. If left untreated, pressure sores can become infected and be fatal, and can even cause death. Preventing pressure sores is easy with the range of pressure care products available from NRS.
Pressure Care Prevention in the Home
Pressure care management is the process of preventing pressure sores. Pressure mattress and pressure cushions are used to support a patient and protect them from the painful and distressing pressure sores. NRS provide a range of pressure mattresses, cushions and wedges to help relieve pressure and provide comfort.
Pressure Care Prevention for Professional Care Environments
To prevent pressure ulcers you should regularly change a patient's position and use correct pressure care management products such as pressure care mattress and pressure care cushions to protect vulnerable parts of the body. Pressure care products are vital for professional care settings, where many patients can remain bed bound for long periods of time.
