This mattress replacement consists of forty independent compartments that can move independently of each other. The cushioning in the compartments is comprised of hundreds of small triangular shaped air filled cells that provide dynamic body support, pressure reduction and a degree of postural support. Each compartment can be adjusted in cell density to mould to the users contours and requirements. The compartments sit on a foam bottom layer. The mattress can be used on any type of bed frame. The manufacturer states that the mattress is suitable for use with users at high risk of developing pressure ulcers. Available in three sizes including one paediatric size.

General Details

Extra product information

Features
The triangular or tetrahedral shaped air filled cells have a low friction level when in contact with each other and are able to continuously adapt and conform to the bodies contours. This aims to provide a combination of good pressure relief with reduced shearing and a high degree of stability.
User specific requirements can be accommodated by the addition or removal of tetrahedral cells from each of the compartments.
The four corners of the mattress are fitted with double plastic rings to provide a four-point fixation of the bed sheet to prevent hammocking which occurs if the sheet is fitted too tightly.
The outer cover is made from polyurethane-coated fleece fabric that has two-way stretch and is liquid proof.
The mattress is fitted with handles for transportation purposes.

Factors to Consider

There are many things to consider when selecting pressure care products including nutrition, skin moisture, level of mobility, age shear, friction, location of pressure ulcer (if present) and hygiene. Any comments regarding level of pressure care is a suggestion made by suppliers as a guide to assist with selection, and this may differ from brand to brand. When selecting pressure care products it is strongly advised that a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a health professional to encourage correct product selection and monitoring of product effectiveness.

Tetrahedral cells and cover can help reduce shear and improve pressure relief.
The tetrahedral cells shift and resettle with movement of the user.
Punctures will affect individual air cells only.
Resuscitation and cardiac massage can be performed without any additional measures.
