Verkauf von Antidekubitus- und Schmerzsystemen.

The term appears in a text on medical equipments. What could that be??? Antidecubitus is clear but systems??? and again system preceded by pain sounds wierd. Could there be a better expression??

sale of bedsore (or decubitus) and pain management systems
Explanation:
Seems like these are systems designed to prevent both bedsores and pain in people undergoing long-term convalescence or who are permanently bedridden, e.g. elderly people in nursing homes, veterans, etc.

Technologies exist to automate bedsore and pain management. For instance, automatically changing the inclination or matress hardness, automatically administering pain medication via drip (or allowing the patient to control this him- or herself).
