We were at the annual European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel conference in Belfast recently where we met the inspirational and dedicated minds behind treating and, more importantly, preventing pressure ulcers.

Here at LimbO Products we thought it would be fun to put together a list of things only someone with a cast can understand. Have a read, have a laugh and let us know if we’ve missed any off!
